Spink Shreves Galleries Sale - 121
Floyd E. Risvold Collection - American Expansion & Journey West - January 27-29, 2010
Over fifty years in the making, the Risvold Collection boasts a fantastic
array of historical postal envelopes (a large number include original
contents), autographs, manuscripts, rare photos and books - all of which
bring to life the story of America's journey westward - and many of which
have not been on the market in decades. The only collection of its kind,
the Risvold sale - to be offered at unreserved public auction by Spink
Shreves Galleries on January 27-29, 2010, in our New York gallery - will
appeal to anyone interested in holding a piece of remarkable American
history in their hands, as the diversity, rarity and historic value of the
material is simply amazing. Just a few of the areas covered in the
collection include material from early Indian wars, Fur Trade companies,
the Civil War, Mormon history, railroads, steamboats, Pony Express letters,
military forts, and much more.
To appropriately honor and preserve The Risvold Collection and its lasting
legacy, a stunning set of three hardbound all-color catalogs housed in a
luxurious slipcase has been produced. To order your own set ($125 postage
paid for U.S. addresses; $150 for foreign addresses), please call
800-556-7826 or visit www.SpinkShreves.com
As with all Spink Shreves auctions, bidders may participate in the auction
- live on the internet - during the sale. Please see our website
www.SpinkShreves.com for details of this exciting bidding option.
