Fine Art Auction

Books, Maps, Globes & Manuscripts
10 June 2022


Stockholms Auktionsverk has been given the honour to sell a large collection of globes from the 18th and -19th centuries, including a pair of rare miniature globes by the renowned German cartographer Johann Baptist Homann from c. 1710. The collection also includes several English pocket- or miniature globes in original cases as well as two very fine large library globes by the English globemaker Cruchley (c. 1850), 45 and 51 cm in diameter respectively. Besides a large number of beautiful and interesting globes, there are a few scientific instruments and two telluriums by Ernst Schotte.

Beside the globes the auction will, of course, contain many interesting books and maps. Fredric Henrik af Chapman’s classic on shipbuilding, Architectura Navalis Mercatoria from 1768 is rarely for sale, and we will also offer a fine copy of Olaus Magnus’ well-known Historia from 1555.

We can also offer an Austrian charter of nobility from 1860, a signed photograph of August Strindberg and a rare concert poster from Bob Dylan’s first performance in Japan in 1978.
