FINE BOOKS & COLLECTIONS, February 3, 2016--

While many collectors and booksellers are flocking to California over the next couple of weeks, others are making their way to Florida, for the Miami Map Fair and/or the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show.

Strands of George Washington's hair, presented with pieces of the red cedar case that housed the first president's coffin.

The Palm Beach show is now a seven-day event, featuring more than 170 international exhibitors. Book and manuscript dealers include Daniel Crouch Rare Books, Lion Heart Autographs (they will present a marriage document signed by Napoleon and Josephine), and M.S. Rau of New Orleans, which will showcase some fine presidential material, including this John Quincy Adams land certificate, priced at $8,850, as well as strands of George Washington's hair and JFK assassination court case files.
