San Diego, Calif., 24-February 2010
Under the watchful eye of Elizabeth Muller, vice president of Sotheby’s books and manuscripts department, this past December the staff of ArtWorks San Diego packed thousands of rare manuscripts and historical books – enough to fill 38 crates -- from the James S. Copley Library in La Jolla. These works were sent to Sotheby’s in New York City, where they were put on public view to build anticipation for auctions to be held later this year.
