Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel's first children's book, "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street," was published in 1937; in the year 2000, nine years after his death, the ageless appeal of his whimsical world is selling seats on Broadway ("Seussical") and at the movies ("The Grinch"). Yet most of Geisel's legacy is on paper: nearly four dozen books and countless sketches, drawings, editorial cartoons and commercial art.

Mohandas Gandhi's eyeglasses and other items sold for $1.8 million at an auction that drew outrage from the Indian government, a last-minute reversal from the seller and a frenzy of bidding that was won by an Indian conglomerate that said the pacifist leader's things would be coming home.
