The auction is made up of "over 220 choice lots cosigned by 20 of the nation's leading collectors including items from the late Ed Hill and Walter Gydesen."
To pre-order an auction catalog visit Haversat & Ewing Galleries.
UPDATE: The Amsterdam prison break lithograph topped out at $16,000, but failed to meet the reserve. The key collection also fell below the reserve, reaching $2,625. However, the photo of Houdini and his dog Charlie sold for a very respectable $5,775.
