The most expensive sales of 2014 – a double helping of David Bailey


Michael Caine from David Bailey’s Box of Pin-ups photography book

Today, we have published our annual list of the most expensive sales of the year. The list for 2014 is remarkable for many reasons. A copy of Das Kapital sold for a staggering sum. There were appearances from legendary books like Dune, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Hobbit, Ulysses, and A Farewell to Arms. A signed postcard from Gandhi sat alongside a photograph of the Apollo XI crew.

Two copies of David Bailey’s seminal 1960s photography book, A Box of Pin-ups, appear on the list. The book contains images of just about anyone who was anyone – from Michael Caine to Mick Jagger – in London during that period.

 See the list.
