A calendar year's worth of historical events are presented along with auctions of related collectibles in this fun and informative compilation. The day-by-day historical entries and corresponding sales are arranged chronologically from January 1 to December 31. Many of the sales, both public and private, were for fabulous sums. The Cowardly Lion's costume from The Wizard of Oz auctioned for $3+ million. Joan of Arc's ring sold for almost $425,000. The most expensive album wasn't by the Beatles, but by Wu-Tang Clan, whose Once Upon a Time in Shaolin sold for a reported $2 million. More than 650 images further illustrate the antiques, artworks, pop culture memorabilia, and ephemera. Did you know the largest sum paid for an artwork by a living artist was more than $57 million? Look at the November 12 listing to find out more. AUTHOR: Mike McLeod has been the editor of Southeastern Antiquing and Collecting Magazine for 16 years.
