    Robert Crumb - Original Sketches, Laura Hope Crews (1962). On one side of this sketchbook page is a lovely rendering of Laura Hope Crews, an actress on the stage and screen from the early part of the 1900s. The other side of this page has Robert Crumb's transcription of a page from the diary of his sister Sandra, with whom young Robert had a tumultuous relationship. The diary entry is dated January 1, 1962, and the transcription is thoughtfully titled "Sandra's Diary With Notes by R. Crumb," and Crumb does indeed include one annotated note at the bottom of the sheet. A personal and almost disturbingly voyeuristic page detailing the everyday melodrama of a young girl's adolescence, carefully transcribed in the characteristic lettering of a young (and evidently impudent) Robert Crumb. The page measures 6.5" x 8.5" and is in very good condition with light yellowing at the extreme edges.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
