Immensely desirable signed book: Dresses from the Collection of Diana, Princess of Wales. Limited edition, numbered 202/250. NY: Christie's, 1997. Purple leatherbound hardcover, 12 x 17, 204 pages. Prominently signed and numbered on the "The Sale" prefatory page in black ink, "Diana." An opening page features a printed copy of a letter written by Diana stating that her son William inspired the sale, and the volume boasts magnificent full-color images of each dress to be sold. In very fine condition. Accompanied by the original laminated bidder's paddle, numbered "202."

Christie's released this luxurious limited edition signed deluxe version of the auction catalog for their charity sale of dresses from Diana's wardrobe in 1997. The sale, which benefitted AIDS and cancer charities, was held on June 25, 1997, and raised over $3.6 million. The highlight of the sale was Princess Diana’s off-the shoulder, midnight-blue velvet dress designed by Victor Edelstein, famously worn during a dance with John Travolta at the White House in 1985, which brought in $222,500.
