2 volumes. 4to. Profusely illustrated. Green gilt-stamped cloth. Fine. 502 lots. With prices realized for Part II. Famously, this sale was cancelled/pulled. Horblit was able to wrest his books back away from Sotheby. He later partly sold his collection to H.P. Kraus and gave a portion to Harvard. Even so, this collection is one of the key collections in the history of science formed in the 20th century. See: Basbanes, A Gentle Madness. View more info
