Dear Friends,

This Saturday marked another successful auction at Arader Galleries!  We are delighted to announce our July sale totaled $1,226,283. The 90 lot sale featured a selection of outstanding material. The Audubon Birds section had highlights of Lot 7, the Ruffed Grous selling for $48,000 Hammer and Lot 9, the Reddish Egret or Purple Heron achieving a total price of $54,900.

A few choice oil paintings were sold and included Lots 54 and 55, two spectacular works by Conrad Wise Chapman of the Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl Mountains in Mexico and Monterrey from the Cerro del Chipinque Valley. They sold for $24,400 and $31,720 respectively. 

Finally the sale rounded out with an excellent offering of antique maps and books. Lot 79, a beautiful manuscript map of Nookta Sound by Quimper sold for $35,380, Lot 82, a 1584 second Latin edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum sold for $97,600, and finally Lot 87 a gorgeous second edition of Gould's Monograph of the Trogonidae sold for $26,840.

Our Next Auction is September 29th, which will be a large sale of choice works including natural history works on paper, antique maps and rare books.

If you have not seen it yet, you are invited to the play of my daughter, Abigail Arader. It is a Broadway musical revival of "Comfort Women: A New Musical." She won the lead role over 1,878 other candidates. There will be performances for all of August and you are invited as my guest.

Hope you can make it.
