the record Price yesterday's auction set the first edition of of the novel in verse "Eugene Onegin", the first Chapter of which was published in 1825. A volume of Pushkin — lot 90 — is almost 4 times higher than the original estimate of the auction house and was sold for $584 000. (The conversion is made at the rate of $ 1.25 for 1 pound.)

In second place by results of the evening — $218 750 for lot 36 — "Evenings on a farm near Dikanka" by Nikolai Gogol, two volumes 1831-1832 years. Our expert considered care even for half the price is unlikely. But at the same time made it clear that Gogol is not the first time hits record and its first edition is capable of surprises. There is an opinion that antique books by this author are now fighting the Ukrainian collectors.

In the third place — lot 78 — the poem "Ruslan and Ludmila" by Alexander Pushkin 1820 edition. She paid $180 000. It is expensive. Estimate was almost three times lower, and even at that price there was no confidence in the care. But here podi you. You never know.

Antique editions of the famous collections of yesterday were sold for very good money. There were leaves for $60,000 — 90 000 — 100 000. Just sold 76 of the 121 lots — 63 %. With a full table of results is possible see here or here.

And this is probably the occasion for collectors-библиофилов not finished. If the assumptions Anatoly Borovkova's true, then someday we shall see at the auction from the same collection of rare editions with autographs of Vladimir Mayakovsky, Nikolai Gumilev, Marina Tsvetaeva.
