EINSTEIN'S LETTER ON GOD SOLD FOR A RECORD PRICE
05 December 2018
Category : MARKET


Christie's 4 December sale of Fine printed books and manuscripts realized a total of 5,425,625 USD achieving 75% by lot and 81% by value with Albert Einstein's letter on God  sold for 2,892,500 USD,a new world auction record for a letter by the celebrated scientist achieved after a four-minute bidding battle between two clients on the phones. 

The bid was won by Books and Manuscripts Senior Specialist, Christina Geiger. Other great results in the Fine Printed Books & Manuscripts sale were achieved for a collection of original printing blocks for the first editions of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland which fetched 81,250 USD against an estimate of 20,000-30,000 while Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection went for 162,500 USD and the rare true first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone  achieved a world auction record for Harry Potter and more than doubled its high estimate realizing a similar price.
