The catalog -- a hardcover book, really -- features a hologram of the "Kneeling Egyptian Harpist" on the front. Of course, the book contains detailed descriptions for the 150+ fine automata that are in the auction. But it goes far beyond being just a catalog because it also features a series of essays on various common automata themes. The essays deal with the great outdoors, exoticism, spectacle, theater, and occupational themes.
I am told that there is something for everyone here -- including magic automata, very complex clock automata, and the earliest animated window displays.
Here is where you can order Theriault's auction catalogs, including the one for the upcoming automata auction.
