Who will show up for this sale? The greedy, the needy, the in-love and out-of-sorts and that's just to bid on the first page. Many fortunes will be made and perhaps a few lost. This auction isn't about facts. It's all about emotion. So plan to inspect ahead of time, register for a paddle, bid online or in the room. Buy yourself a holiday gift. It's something you'll be talking about years from now. Hopefully your story will have a happy ending.

Here is a link to the Collector's Bookstore auction. The material can be inspected in LA at the Collector's Bookstore, 6225 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028. Check the site for days and hours.
