px2 writes “I was poking around Christie’s auction house after taking a look at the Apple 1 when I came across this: Beautiful Evidence: The Library of Edward Tufte. He’s unloading everything from Galileo and Da Vinci firsts to a rotating Japanese astronomical text from 1801. I guess he didn’t conjure his ideas on information design from thin air.” Based on Christie’s estimates, the collection of 29 artifacts could fetch in excess of two and a quarter million dollars.
