New York Auctions–Swann Galleries


Swann sold a complete set of Edward S. Curtis's The North American Indian for $1,440,000--the highest priced item ever sold at New York's premiere auction house for works on paper.

The top lot in yesterday's auction of Fine Photographs & Photobooks was also the top lot ever sold at Swann Galleries. A set of Edward S. Curtis's magnum opus, The North American Indian, complete with 20 text volumes and 20 folios, brought $1.44 million dollars--more than any other single lot sold at Swann in our 70-year history. In 1952, Swann conducted the first auction devoted to photobooks in the United States.
