Marrying millionaire Edward L. Doheny allowed Estelle Betzold the resources to become a renowned collector of books. Being a devout Catholic, she had a particular interest in Bibles, most notably the Guttenberg, which she owned for decades. In 1987, 25 years after her death, her gift to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles became unrestricted and was liquidated. During the two years of auctions in New York, London and Paris, her collection at the Edward Laurence Doheny Memorial Library ultimately realized upwards of $34 million. Part I. Fifteenth-Century Books including The Gutenberg Bible. Part II. Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts. Part III: Printed Books and Manuscripts including Western Americana. Part IV: Printed Books and Manuscripts including Early Printing, Literature and Fine Bindings. Part V: Printed Books and Manuscripts including Americana, Literature and Fine Bindings. Part VI: Printed Books and Manuscripts concerning William Morris and His Circle. Index: An alpabetical check-list, with prices realized, of the six sale catalogues of Printed Books and Manuscripts
