BLOOMFIELD, N.J. - Nov. 7, 2021 - PRLog -- Nye & Company Auctioneers' online auction of The Charles S. Shultz Collection on Wednesday, November 17th, is certain to delight collectors, dealers, scientific and literary enthusiasts. The Estate Treasures auction, starting at 10 am Eastern time, includes the scientific and travel library from Charles S. Shultz, the noted 19th century financier and past president of the American Microscopical Society and the New York Microscopical Society. Also included are scientific instruments, minerals, Geissler tubes and 19th and 20th century ephemera.

The objects and books are being deaccessioned from the Charles Shultz House to benefit the collections fund of Montclair History Center in Montclair, New Jersey.

Shultz House, also known as Evergreens, was built by Charles Shultz in 1896. The large, stately home was occupied by three generations of the Shultz family. From Charles to his granddaughter Molly, the home was owned by this family for 100 years. These were inquisitive people with many interests: they were scientists, inventors, tinkerers, woodworkers, craftspeople, outdoor sports enthusiasts, gardeners, naturalists, travelers and readers. "Time capsule" best describes the home; the contents are endlessly intriguing for their breadth and variety.

The property was bequeathed to the non-profit Montclair History Center (MHC) in 1996 and was opened as a house museum until 2019.  Despite a deep love and respect for the house, and due to substantial maintenance costs, MHC is de-accessioning the property, including the contents of both the main house and the carriage house. Some items have been retained by the MHC to tell the story of the Shultz family and Montclair history; others have been passed along to Shultz family members.

Nye & Company will be offering the complete contents of Charles Shultz's comprehensive late Victorian science library, together with an interesting and unusual array of scientific experiments and equipment.

Highlights include three mid- and late-19th century microscopes, including a Bausch & Lomb "Continental" microscope, a Spencer microscope and a Charles Collins binocular microscope, as well as an important selection of objective lenses including a rare H.R. Spencer ½" 100 degree lens. Charles Shultz's particular area of interest was microscopic diatoms; this is one of the largest collections of slides and books relating to this subject to come.

The sale will feature real time online and absentee bidding, which will be available on www.nyeandcompany.com, www.liveauctioneers.com, www.bidsquare.com and
www.invaluable.com. An online preview is being held through November 16th. For more info, visit www.nyeandcompany.com.
