"This year’s highlights
Each year has particularly special items that are a great reminder of the role that books and printed matter play in our understanding of history. Here are 5 exceptional ones from this year:
First, Paris bookseller Librairie 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). You can find it at the booth of rare bookseller Peter Harrington, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Third, a lightly worn copy of the National Woman Suffrage Association’s 1876 Declaration of Rights of the Women of the United States is for sale through Whitmore Rare Books ($37,500).
Fourth, Walter Reuben Inc is offering  a cinema memorabilia collection that shines a light on L.G.B.T.Q. 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)."
