NEW YORK (AP) — The sale of a prominent Abraham Lincoln scholar’s
collection of material pertaining to the nation’s 16th president brought
in nearly $300,000 at a New York City auction.

Swann Galleries says nearly 90 percent of Harold Holzer’s collection of
hundreds of Lincoln books, artwork and documents was sold recently
at auction in Manhattan. The overall sale total of $299,995 topped the
presale estimate of $158,000 to $236,000.

An 1860 painting of Lincoln before he grew a beard drew the highest
price at $40,000.

Holzer is an award-winning historian best known for his books on
Lincoln and the Civil War. He collected hundreds of Lincoln items
during the decades he spent researching and writing about him.

Holzer currently serves as director of Hunter College’s Roosevelt     
House Public Policy Institute.
