Join us for this special sale, Sunday morning during the ABAA (Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America) Book Fair in Pasadena, California. The sale will be held at 8:00 am in the Cypress room of the Pasadena Sheraton, 303 East Cordova Street, just next door to the Pasadena Convention Center and the 51st California International Antiquarian Book Fair. The first half of the auction will be PBA's offering of Rare Books & Manuscripts, with the second part devoted to books donated by ABAA members to benefit the Antiquarian Booksellers' Benevolent Fund which was established to benefit all booksellers in times of distress. The descriptions of the books are by the donor members, and we have worked with them on setting fair estimates for the wide range of fine material. As always, there will be full provisions for absentee, phone, and online bidding.

PBA Dynamic Bidding
When you place an absentee bid online, PBA's Dynamic Bidding will calculate your absentee bid against competing absentee bids and determine the current high bid amount. So, for example, if you place an absentee bid of $200 on an item with a minimum bid of $100, you will be notified that you are the high bidder and the bid is at $100. If a second bidder then places a bid of $150, your bid will be incremented up to $160. The under bidder will also be notified by email that their bid was outbid with a link to the item to enter a higher bid if desired. The current high bid will be the starting bid when the lot comes up in the live auction itself. In addition to providing full transparency, Dynamic Bidding will allow you to make more informed decisions.
