Bid Him Bring His Pen And Inkhorn To Auction

Last week the Goreyana blog posted this bit of news for collectors:
On Thursday January 23rd, Swann Auction Galleries in New York City is having its second 20th Century Illustration Auction. Previews begin Friday January 17th. This auction includes a nice selection of original artwork by Edward "Bill" Gorey. Of special interest are four full color paintings by Mr. Gorey created as dust jacket designs the John Bellairs book series.
By my count you can bid on the following:
  • The Bell, the Book, and the Spellbinder (Estimate $6,000 - $9,000)
    • also includes EG's spine and cover letter-work
  • The Drum, the Doll, and the Zombie (Estimate $4,000 - $6,000)
    • also includes EG's spine and cover letter-work 
  • The Ghost in the Mirror (Estimate $6,000 - $9,000)
  • The Specter From the Magician's Museum (Estimate $6,000 - $9,000)
