Buch auction

Today Sotheby’s is auctioning the late Boudewijn Buch’s stuff. Buch owned a lot of stuff; in fact, he tried to collect almost anything which was related to his many interests (among which some quite weird ones). One of the interest I share with him is of geographical nature – cartographic obsession, the longing to visit the most isolated looking spots on the map etc. Wouldn’t have minded bidding on some of his map collections; however, the proposed bid prices are acting as an efficient deterrant – I can think of better ways to spend a thousand Euro’s. His immense book collection is to be auctioned later – too bad, it made an impressive library and would be good material for a museum.
