First, Paris bookseller Bookstore le Feu Follet is offering a historic collection of early Japanese photographic images taken by Felice Beato.
The second is a remarkably rare first edition of the paper Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer, wrote. It belonged to her math tutor, who extensively annotated it ($ 325,000). Peter Harrington, who is celebrating his 50th anniversary.
Third, a lightly worn copy of the National Woman's Suffrage Association's 1876 Declaration of the Rights of the Women of the United States is for sale through Whitmore Rare Books ($ 37,500).
Fourth, Walter Reuben is offering a cinema memorabilia collection that shines a light on LGBTQ performers in Hollywood's early years ($ 95,000).
And finally, Read'Em Again Books has an early 19th-century Bible in which the Wilson family, owners of a plantation in South Carolina, detailed some of their slaves' tragic fates ($ 30,000).
