We are currently auctioning an excellent collection of campaign books (and related memorabilia, including bound volumes of studio weeklies) in our current set of Sunday auctions (closing June 26th, beginning at 3 PM CST, NOT 7 PM CST like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions).
What is really remarkable about these campaign books is that even though we have auctioned lots of campaign books over the years, almost every one of these are ones that we have NEVER auctioned before! They come to us from a very longtime collector, and they include some of the best campaign book art ever. After the exhibitor magazines is a limited edition hardcover version of the third issue of "Cinema Arts" magazine (we have never seen something like this before), and the last three items are bound volumes of Paramount and Fox's in-house trade papers to their theaters (The Last Word and Publix Opinion).
Here are direct links to each of the 12 auctions (they are the first 12 auctions in the set of auctions closing Sunday the 26th):
