Pierre Bergé, Yves Saint Laurent’s longtime life partner, is selling the remainder of his rare book collection. Bergé, who helped run Laurent’s fashion empire, sold the first part of his collection last year—the auction netted upward of $13 million. The second auction will take place November 8-9, 2016, at Sotheby’s in Paris and will includes the manuscripts of the Marquis de Sade’s last novel and Gustave Flaubert’s Over Strand and Field.
