Best Bids:
The Insider's Guide to Buying at Auction

By Dana Micucci

Viking Studio, Penguin, USA
ISBN 0670893838
hb, dj, 184pp


"For first-time bidders mystified and intimidated by the auction process, Best Bids spells it all out -- from the preview to the bidding, from small country auctions to giant internationals like Sotheby's and Christie's to bidding on the Internet.
This comprehensive book details the nuts and bolts of the auction process: how to bid, how to consign an object for sale, how to evaluate an item, and how to recognize a fake.
Best Bids is also filled with illustrated examples and advice from experts in sixteen of the most popular fields of collecting: American Folk Art, American Furniture, Books and Manuscripts, Chinese Ceramics, Chinese Furniture, Contemporary Art, European Ceramics, European Furniture, Japanese Art, Paintings, Photographs, Pre-Columbian Art, Rugs and Carpets, Sculpture, 20th Century Decorative Arts, and Works on Paper.
Each of the chapters covers such topics as condition, quality, rarity, and pricing."
