June 10, 2019 –A Behind the Scenes Look at Christie's Auction House

Join the NYFWA at Christie’s Auction House  for a private tour of the upcoming Books & Manuscripts Including Americana Auction, featuring Luca Pacioli’s Summa de Arithmetica. The tour and discussion will be led by Christina Geiger, head of Books & Manuscripts in New York, followed by a cocktail hour from 7-8:30 p.m. at Megan's Bar & Kitchen.

Pacioli’s book, published in 1494, codified the mathematical foundations of our modern and technological world. It includes mathematics, computing, and is the first published description of double-entry book-keeping. Pacioli was among the earliest to recognize the study of economics as a liberal art and this work is the first practical how-to book on succeeding in business.

This event is only open to NYFWA members in good standing who have paid their 2019 dues. Guests of the NYFWA are welcome to attend for $15, which must be paid in advance using the following link:
