Going, Going, Gone

Exciting news for all who are interested in Mallorca and the Baleares. Salas de Subastas Soler y Llach, a Spanish auction house in Barcelona, is doing an elaborate antique book sale on Tuesday, April 27th. You could bid for a rare first edition of Un Hiver À Majorque (1864), by George Sand, or an unusual Isla de Mallorca (1845), by Juan Cortada, or a remarkable Voyages dans les Iles Baleares et Pithiuses (1807), by André Grasset de St.-Sauveur. People more interested in maps can find an extremely rare map of Catalunya by Joannes Blaeu from 1640, or a nice old etching of the Port of Palma from 1764, done by J. Roux. Starting prices are not too outrageous considering the lots’ age and rarity.

If you are interested and would like to know more, check the Internet.

The photo (top) was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Valldemossa, Mallorca, Spain. The date: January 7th, 2009. The time was 13:51:12. The book cover images were taken from the Internet, courtesy of Soler y Llach.
