Arctic Blue Books to bring a cool $60,000 to Bonhams' auction

As part of its Northwest America and the Arctic auction, Bonhams will offer the heralded Arctic Library of Dr William Priester, starring the Arctic Blue Books, on June 25 in New York.

William Goldson Northwest Passage
This first edition copy of William Goldson's scarce work on the Northwest Passage will also sell for $25,000-35,000



The Arctic Blue Books are a remarkable six-volume compilation of British parliamentary papers relating to Arctic exploration.

Estimated at $40,000-60,000, the books are valued for including significant details regarding the Arctic expedition of Sir John Franklin, who disappeared on his 1845 voyage along with his crew of 128 men.

Paul Fraser Collectibles is currently offering a superb and personal handwritten letter from Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton to his wife.
