    University Archives is quickly earning a reputation as sourcing the best Albert Einstein material available on the market. Among the outstanding items sold in our January 6th sale was an Albert Einstein typed letter signed, in which he admitted destroying an early Theory of Relativity manuscript, which sold for $100,000. In our March 3rd sale, we sold a single leaf of Einstein’s handwritten notes in German including 11 mathematical formulae for $46,875.

     U.S. Presidents continue to generate extremely strong interest among collectors. 

     A Revolutionary War-dated letter signed by George Washington, commenting on the courage of Patriot troops during the ongoing Battle of Yorktown, garnered $31,250 in our January 6th sale. In our March 3rd sale, we sold a 4pp manuscript document signed by Thomas Jefferson and addressed to “My Friends & Children Chiefs of the Cherokee Nation” for $100,000, and a 2pp Civil War dated autograph letter signed by Abraham Lincoln regarding an Illinois railroad company vital to securing troop transport for $37,500.
