Ladies and gentlemen, start your wallets.
A partial auction of the Bruce M. Lisman Collection of Important American Literature starts in less than an hour.
Of course, most of the items are out of our budgets ... for example, some of the first manuscripts listed are poems by Phillis Wheatley, expected to fetch several thousand dollars each.
NPR did a quick segment on Lisman and his literary collection, which may be the closest most of us will get to these literary artifacts.
