We are honored to liquidate this great Providence RI estate with great family ties to Rose Dobbs the author and editor of many early children's books. Rose was the Aunt of the estate we are liquidating. They came to the country via Ellis Island as a young child with her mother two sibling in the early 1900's. Rose live in New York City most of her life and worked as an author and editor for Coward-McCann, David Mckay, and others. Rose was close friends with Flavia Gag they worked on many books together. Towards the end of Rose's life she moved to Providence to be closer to her sister and family.
In this collection there are many singed books as well as original illustrations from some very important illustrators and books.
The house has some great collectibles and custom furniture. The family had strong ties and taught in Brazil for many years.
