Bloomsbury Auctions

(www­.bloomsburyauctions.com), a 24-year-old London-based auctioneer that

specializes in rare books and other printed materials, will open its first U.S.

branch this month, in midtown Manhattan. The 10,000-square-foot facility’s first

sale, on September 26, will feature a 67-volume lot of first-edition works by

economists John Stuart Mill, Adam Smith, David Hume, Thomas Robert Malthus, and

John Maynard Keynes. Bloomsbury also will offer a rare book from 1660,

L’arti per via (Arts of the Street), a collection of etchings of street

vendors and artisans by the Italian artist Giuseppe Maria Mitelli.
