Science Fiction Author Ray Bradbury’s Estate Auction Nets Nearly US $500,000

Late Science Fiction Author Ray Bradbury (Reuters)

 A portion of late science fiction author Ray Bradbury’s estate, including George Bernard Shaw’s garden spade and artworks both comedic and surreal, sold for $493,408 in California, the auctioneer said.

Bradbury, who died in 2012, was perhaps best known for his dystopian classic, “Fahrenheit 451.,” the auctioneer said. In a career spanning more than 70 years, the Waukegan, Illinois, native also wrote “Dandelion Wine,” “I Sing the Body Electric” and “From the Dust Returned” as hundreds of short stories, poems, essays, operas, plays, teleplays and screenplays.

Among Bradbury’s possessions sold late on Thursday was an inscribed spade owned by Irish Playwright George Bernard Shaw and a meandering science-fiction-free unpublished poem about the garden tool, which sold together for $6,250, auctioneer Nate D. Sanders said.

Dean Ellis’ painting of a naked, tattoo-covered man sitting atop a tiny wooden platform under a bewitching crimson sky, used for the 1969 cover of short story collection “The Illustrated Man,” sold for $45,894, the auction house said.

Surrealist painting “Carnival” by Italian-born artist Joseph Mungnaini, a longtime friend of Bradbury’s who developed cover and interior art for his books, won $23,153, the auctioneer said.

A mounted silver Hugo Award, the top trophy for science fiction writing which Bradbury won in 2004, garnered $28,734, and Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant comic series fetched $21,175, it said.

E.H. Ernest Shepard Winnie the Pooh Drawings Sketches

Nate D. Sanders had the privilege of auctioning off a E.H. Ernest Shepard Winnie the Pooh drawings sketches, which sold for $40,954 in February, 2012. After earning a Military cross for his service in World War I, Shepard became a cartoonist at “Punch” magazine, when his colleague E.V. Lucas recommended Shepard to illustrate A.A. Milne’s book of poems in which Winnie-the-Pooh made his first appearance, entitled “When We Were Very Young”.

Milne was reluctant to hire the inexperienced Shepard, but changed his mind when the book was released, insisting that Shepard illustrate Winnie-the-Pooh books from there on in. In the beautiful E.H. Shepard illustration sold by Nate D. Sanders Auctions, Shepard draws Pooh and Piglet upon a letter to his agent, using the iconic characters to express his feelings of gratitude and joy. Dated 29 February 1932, Shepard thanks his agent for a letter, writing that he has “done splendidly” and that “this view is shared by others.” To emphasize his feelings, Shepard draws Winnie-the-Pooh reaching up and Piglet excitedly jumping at his side. Shepard generally shied away from drawing the characters outside of “working” hours, so this is considered a very special departure for him.
