This auction will have special significance because of the remarkable pieces being offered directly from the estate of Robert Batchelder, one of the most important dealers of the 20th century. He began his passion in autographs and historical documents in the late 1960’s and was a prominent and respected authority throughout his life. Each piece will include Robert’s original description indicating the noted retail price, which could have been from 20 years ago. Robert’s highly diverse background and amazing achievements include a long list of memberships, including being an honorary member of the Society Cincinnati, a member of the Manuscript Society, the ABAA (Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America), the ANA (American Numismatic Association), the PAGCA (Pennsylvania Antique Gun Collectors Association), the PADA (Professional Autograph Dealer Association), and the UACC (Universal Autograph Collectors Club). He was a graduate of University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and served in the U.S. Army Air Force.
A portion of the commission on Batchelder lots will be donated to the Alzheimer’s foundation.
