The successors to Baum as chroniclers of Oz are well represented, with Oz and non-Oz books by Ruth Plumly Thompson, John R. Neill, Jack Snow, and others, plus Oz illustrators such as W.W. Denslow and Dick Martin. Included are many books in rare dust jackets, inscribed books, ephemeral items, and more. Gathered over span of four decades by Craig Noble, seldom does a collection of this scope come on the market in a single auction.
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.
