Fine Books and Manuscripts

The Fine Books and Manuscripts department at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers conducts regularly scheduled auctions of collections large and small consigned by individuals, estates and institutions. Our regularly scheduled auctions include autographs, maps, John James Audubon prints, and original illustration art. Areas of interest include natural history; Americana; fine printing; illustrated books from all periods, including color plate books and livres d’artistes; English and Continental literature and history; illuminated manuscripts; travel, topography and exploration; fine bindings; numismatics; science and technology; and a diverse range of interesting items in other fields.

We pride ourselves on the special attention given to every consignment and have received global recognition online and in print for exceptional prices realized, especially with regard to historically significant autographs and archives, memorabilia, and rare Chicago items. Our specialists’ expertise and quality of service, coupled with a shared enthusiasm for history and the printed word, ensure complete client satisfaction and, above all, consistent results. We would be pleased to review photographs of your items or schedule an in-person appointment to provide you with complimentary auction estimates for your property.


We invite you to contact our Fine Books and Manuscripts department for a complimentary auction estimate.
