Whether browsing by category or searching, sale prices, regional auction data, background information and auction house links connect you with antiques, collectibles, fine art, and historic Americana.

…and today is Poem in Your Pocket Day! Come celebrate with us–choose a poem from one of our poetry baskets near the main Reference desk, and carry it in your pocket, bring it home, or read it to a friend! And if you have a favorite poem to share, put it in one of the baskets for someone else to take. Poems and poetry books will be on display through the end of the month.
