The Floyd E. Risvold Collection American Expansion & the Journey West: Volume 3 - Special Collections, Spink Shreves Galleries January 27-29, 2010 New York


3 Volume Set. Beautifully leatherbound and housed in a smart slipcase, elegantly embossed in gold, illustrated throughout in colour. An essential reference for all collectors. 

Over fifty years in the making, the Risvold Collection boasts a fantastic array of historical postal envelopes (a large number include original contents), autographs, manuscripts, rare photos and books - all of which bring to life the story of America's journey westward - and many of which have not been on the market in decades. The only collection of its kind, the Risvold sale - to be offered at unreserved public auction by Spink Shreves Galleries on January 27-29, 2010, in our New York gallery - will appeal to anyone interested in holding a piece of remarkable American history in their hands, as the diversity, rarity and historic value of the material is simply amazing. Just a few of the areas covered in the collection include material from early Indian wars, Fur Trade companies, the Civil War, Mormon history, railroads, steamboats, Pony Express letters, military forts, and much more.

To appropriately honour and preserve The Risvold Collection and its lasting legacy, a stunning set of three leatherbound all-colour catalogues housed in a luxurious slipcase were produced and are now available from Spink Books at the special price of £50.
