Kolbe & Fanning are looking forward to our 2017 New York Book Auction, which will take place on Saturday, January 14, 2016, beginning at 12:30 p.m. eastern time, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan in conjunction with the 2017 New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC). The sale features selections from the libraries of Italo Vecchi and Tom Cederlind, and includes rare and desirable works from around the world.
The sale will take place in the Norse Suite on the 18th Floor of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, the location of our past several New York Book Auctions. While we love to see our customers attend in person, there are several different methods available for bidding.
Bids may be submitted by post to the Kolbe & Fanning office in Gahanna, Ohio, but must be received by Monday, January 9 at the latest, as staff will be traveling to New York after that date. Similarly, bids may be faxed to the Gahanna office at (614) 414-0860, but must also be received by that date.
Bids may also be sent directly to David Fanning by email at [email protected] or by mobile at (614) 256-8915. Phone and email bids cannot be accepted on the day of the sale, however, so these must be received by Friday, January 13.
Live online bidding will be available during the sale through our custom auction platform at auction.numislit.com. Absentee bids may also be placed at any time on this site. Registration is required, and we recommend registering before the day of the sale in order to avoid delays. All lots are illustrated on this site, and the privacy of your identity and maximum bids is maintained.
Printed catalogues have been mailed to established clients and a PDF of the printed catalogue has been posted to the main numislit.com website.
As always, viewing of selected lots will be held in the Library Suite on the 18th Floor of the Waldorf-Astoria. Lot viewing will take place on Thursday, January 12 from 9:00 to 5:00, Friday, January 13 from 9:00 to 6:00 and before the sale on Saturday, January 14 from 9:00 to 12:00. Given the bulk involved with book sales, we will only be bringing unusual and rare items to the lot viewing. If you wish us to bring a particular lot, please contact us immediately, as we will be sending these lots in a couple days.
