The World Famous Great Gatsby's Antique Auction June 6th-7th, 1997 (Frank Loyd Wright's Personal Car)
4 The World Famous Great Gatsby's Antique Auction June 6th-7th, 1997 (Frank Loyd Wright's Personal Car)
Atlanta, Georgia Great Gatsby's 1997 Soft Cover Very Good Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
Fabulous over-sized auction catalog filled with rare and beautiful items, all of which are pictured in full color. Measures 10-1/2"x12-1/2 and is clean and tightly bound with just a few spots of wear at spine, none of which compromises its integrity. The former owner's mailing label is on the reverse. This particular catalog is noteworthy due to the sale of Frank Lloyd Wright's personal car, a 1956 Aztec Red Mercedes Gull Wing designed especially for him after he redesigned a New York City car dealership which has since been demolished. The opening bid was to have been $300,000 and Jay Leno was one of many collectors eyeing it, but, try as I may, I cannot find the gavel price. Catalog has 46 pages.

6 Admomeit, Ruth The Miniature Book Collector Volume I Nos. 1-2-3-4 Plus Two Miniature Life Magazines
Cleveland, Ohio Ruth Adomeit 1960 No. 1, Volumes 1-2-3-4 Soft Cover Fne Condition 48mo - over 3 
These little magazines are revered by collectors and members of the Miniature Book Society which was launched by Ruth Adomeit and other like-minded bibliophiles. Adomiet lived in Cleveland, Ohio and at her time was the largest collector of miniature books in the world. The collection was bequeathed to Indiana University upon her death in 1996. Here we have the coveted first year's output -- all four magazines. In these pages, which measure 3-1/4"x4", are many topics including: how to define a miniature book; Le Petite Oiseau Press; Japanese miniature books; books about miniature books; Life Magazine in miniature; and more. Each issue has 16 pages. Also, along with the magazines are two much thinner issues of Life magazine, the very first issue which came out November 23, 1936 and a later one (no date) in full color, likely from 1960. These measure 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". Very desirable and very scarce. (Collector --Drawer I) -
