Part Two of our sale of the P. Scott Rubin Library, which will be held as a traditional mail-bid sale on Saturday, July 10, 2021. The 923-lot sale features material from the extraordinary library formed over the course of more than half a century by Scott Rubin, of which highlights were sold in our Sale 157 last year. The present sale includes not only additional auction catalogues, but books, periodicals, and archival and ephemeral items.
The Salton Library is especially rich in works devoted to ancient coins and the medallic arts, and is notable for its extensive holdings of European auction catalogues, many of which are heavily annotated. The couple’s broad numismatic interests are reflected in their wide-ranging library, which includes material on coins from all over the world. We are offering the library in cooperation with Fritz Rudolf Künker, of Osnabrück, Germany.
