The Vampyre, A Tale of Paris, by John Polidori, 1819, (Estimate: $1,000-2,000).

NEW BRAUNFELS, TX.- iGavel Auctions has announced that its online sale of rare books and incunabula is now open for bidding through October 12th.

“We are delighted to present another important sale of rare books and incunabula, from extremely rare 15th century texts to 20thth century literature,” says Lark Mason, Jr. “There is a wide range of material for bibliophiles who cherish the history of the written word.”

The topics are varied and include religious and historic texts. Among them are: eight incunabula, or books printed prior to 1500 including Athanasius. Illustrium Virorum Opuscula, Paris, 1500 (Estimate: $4,000-6,000) and Scotus, Duns. Quaestiones in Quattuor Libros Sententiarum, 1476-1477 (Estimate: $2,000-4,000). These are some of the first books ever to be printed on a press that used moveable type. Prior to this, the block printing method was used.

From the 16th century are The New Testament of Jesus Christ, translated faithfully into English, Rheims, by John Fogny, 1582, (Estimate: $3,000-5,000) and The Works of Geffrey Chaucer, newly printed, with diverse additions, 1561, (Estimate: $1,500-2,500).

The 19th century is represented by a handful of iconic texts including a first edition of The Vampyre, A Tale of Paris, by John Polidori, 1819, (Estimate: $1,000-2,000) and Mark Twain’s beloved The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 1877 and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, 1885, (Estimate: $2,000-3,000).

Along with an array of books on religion and exploration, 20th century writers such as John Steinbeck, H.G. Wells and Thornton Wilder round out the sale.
All the books are on view at Lark Mason Associations, at 210 West Mill Street, New Braunfels, TX. The exhibition is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-4pm, now through October 12.
