The auction house Sotheby’s will be selling the original paperwork that launched the Apple Computer Company on the 1st April 1976 by Steve Jobs, Ronald Wayne and of course, Steve Wozniak. This lot shows the signatures and set up for Apple and there is even the document that covers Ronald Wayne’s departure from the company selling his 10 per cent stake back to Apple for $2,300 and yes if he had held onto the shareholding it would now be worth around $2.6 billion!
According to Sotheby’s head of books and manuscripts, Richard Austin, he said in an interview with Bloomberg;
“This is a foundation document in terms of financial history, social history, and technological history,”
The auction is due to take place at Sotheby’s Fine Books and Manuscripts auction on 13th December in New York.
