The September 20th, 2012 sale of Fine Books, Maps and Manuscripts includes several good private collections.

Of note is a collection of American manuscript material, including signers of the Declaration of Independence and 18th-20th century Presidents. Scarce signers such as George Taylor, John Witherspoon and Thomas Lynch Jr. are featured.

Other manuscript highlights are a laboratory notebook by Thomas Edison which contains notes of his experiments to find a substitute source of rubber and a 3pp Sir Arthur Conan Doyle manuscript written for Strand Magazine.

Making up a nearly a 1/4 of the sale is an estate collection collected over decades. The collection includes a wide range of categories, with a stength in 19th century English printings with extra illustrations and letters and deluxe bindings, including works by John Leech and George Cruikshank to sought after books from Australia's most prominent artist Norman Lindsay. Other illustrators included from this collection are Cecil Aldin, Phiz, Arthur Rackham and an original Gibson illustration. 19th century literature in the collection includes first editions by Charles Dickens, Lewis Carroll and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A stand out from this collection is Thomas Wright's "An Original Theory or New Hypothesis of the Universe." 1750, a rare and important work on early astronomy.

There are nearly 80 lots of maps in the sale, including signifcant American 18th century examples such as Thomas Jeffery's 1775 map of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, other revolutionary war maps and an 18th century Carey atlas.
