A unique opportunity will occur at 1:30 EDT on Wednesday, March 18. Collectors of rare books will be able to bid on the American History portion of the Al Lowman Library and to know that proceeds from the sale will support TSHA.
Al Lowman very generously donated his library of more than 10,000 books to the Association. Selections from the Texas portion of his library appeared in the Live Auction and the Silent Auction during the 2010 Annual Meeting held March 4-6, 2010.
Proceeds from the sales of Al Lowman's Collection will be used to establish an award to be given for books on Texas county or local history. Mr. Lowman hopes the creation of the award will stimulate more interest and writing in that category.
During a lifetime of collecting, Al Lowman amassed more than 10,000 books, all of which are in collector's condition. Most are first editions, many are signed, some have authorial inscriptions, and all original dust jackets are intact. Find out more...
