This is an auction for THE WOMAN IN WHITE by Wilkie Collins.

From Wikipedia:

"The Woman in White is an epistolary novel written by Wilkie Collins in 1859, first published in book form in 1860.

The novel, which is Collins' most famous, was published in 1860. Walter Hartright, a young drawing master, was walking home from Hampstead on his last evening in London. On this time he meets a mysterious woman dressed in white, apparently in deep distress. He helps her on her way but later learns that she has escaped from an asylum.

The household comprises Mr Frederick Fairlie, and Walter's students: Laura Fairlie, Mr Fairlie's niece, and Marian Halcombe, her devoted half-sister. Hartright finds that Laura bears an astonishing resemblance to the woman in white, called Anne Catherick..."
