Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Library Is Up for Auction

From a story on smithsonianmag.com by Rasheeda Smith headlined “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Personal Library Is Up for Auction”:

More than 1,000 books from the personal collection of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg are up for auction at Bonhams. The trove features legal textbooks, photos, feminist literature and other documents spanning some 60 years of Ginsburg’s career, reports Harriet Sherwood for the Guardian.

“A person’s library can give us a sense of who the individual is and how she came to be,” says Catherine Williamson, director of Bonhams’ book department. “Justice Ginsburg’s library is no different, as it records her evolution from student (and voracious reader) to lawyer and law professor, to judge and finally, justice of the United States Supreme Court.”
