For Those With the Deepest of Pockets

Heritage Auction Galleries will present the Civil War-era photo album of diarist Mary Chestnut, images from which were featured in Ken Burns' television series The Civil War, in their upcoming Grand Format auction, to be held December 1, 2007 in Nashville, Tennessee. The full story can found here.

The opening bid will be a cool $40,000 with the gallery's presale estimate of the winning bid range set at $80,000 - $120,000. (Gulp)
