This is an auction for RODERICK HUDSON by Henry James.

From Wikipedia:

"RODERICK HUDSON is a novel by Henry James. Originally published in 1875 as a serial in The Atlantic Monthly, it is a bildungsroman that traces the development of the title character, a sculptor. Rowland Mallet visits his cousin Cecilia before leaving for Europe. There he sees a bust he really likes. Later he meets the sculptor, Roderick; they meet again, go to Mount Holyoke together. Rowland suggests paying for Roderick's voyage to Italy, so he can improve his artistry there. The next day, Roderick returns his law books to Mr Striker. Rowland visits Roderick's mother and Mr Striker, and he explains why he wants to take him to Rome. Before leaving, they throw a dinner party with Rowland, Roderick and his mother, Miss Garland, and the Strikers. Rowland and Miss Garland go for a stroll; he has feelings for her. Later on the ship Roderick tells Rowland he just got engaged to her. After a rough start, Roderick becomes an expert at his artistry, and at handling the parties that go with it. He throws a dinner party with friends to celebrate his success; he is attracted to Miss Blanchard, although he is still engaged to Miss Garland. He then decides to part with Rowland; he shall go to Switzerland or Germany while Rowland goes to England. The latter writes to Mrs Hudson to inform her of the situation. She replies saying she is pleased the situation has gone so well. However, when Rowland finally hears from Roderick, he begs him for money to cover the debts he incurred while gambling at Baden-Baden . . . "
