Online auction of RBG’s personal library set for this month
Former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
First-edition books owned by the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, including works signed by writer Toni Morrison, journalist Gloria Steinem and the late Justice Antonin Scalia, will be available in an online auction starting Jan. 19.
Law reviews, signed by “Ruth,” and annotated law books are in the collection as well, as are works signed by other current and former Supreme Court justices.
Catherine Williamson, director of Bonhams’ fine books and manuscripts, told Bloomberg that the low-end estimate for the entire collection is $60,000, but she expects significantly more from sales.
