We are kicking off our annual celebratory event known as Lang's week here with a review of the latest auction catalog. Honestly, I can't believe more people don't scramble to purchase these as learning resources, as they are absolutely stunningly well done books in their own right. In every auction catalog I've gotten there are at least 30 pieces not pictured anywhere else, from the Thad Norris rod last November to the incredible collection of Schwiebert materials in this month's auction. For the price, the auction books are a bargain. You can pick up a copy (and back copies) by clicking here.
Next week we'll be spending some time dissecting the offerings from the catalog, and hopefully, doing a bit of live blogging as well. This semi-annual event has been something I really look forward to, although I don't relish being outbid on many of the items that I want!
You can rewind the clock and look at our coverage of last November's auction by starting here. Or you can type "Lang's" into the search function at the top left of this web page.
