Macintosh SE used by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs at Next is the featured lot in the upcoming tech auction, along with Apple memorabilia and artefacts from the history of science and space.

History of science and technology including the history of space auction held by Bonhams contains a wide variety of documents and physical objects associated with significant events, companies and individuals. Among the lists is a significant number of lots dedicated to Apple and Steve Jobs.

The most important parcel is a Macintosh SE the computer used by Steve Jobs while working at NeXT, after his initial departure from Apple.

The computer is described as having been originally set up for use by Jobs’ assistant in late 1987 to early 1988. A hard drive inside the machine contains data relating to his work schedule, including to-do lists, recruitment work, travel and details of a missed meeting with the king Charles III, known at that time as the Prince of Wales.

It moved from the original NeXT office in Palo Alto to Redwood City, reveals Jobs’ office inventory, and was still on Jobs’ desk when the current owner started working for him in 1993. There is also evidence that daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs used a Macintosh SE when visiting the office.

The last task the Macintosh was used for before it was delivered to its current owner was a marketing project in 1994.

The listing for the lot places the estimate for the Macintosh SE between $200,000 and $300,000. Includes 20MB hard drive, additional backup drive, keyboard and mouse.

The auction features a number of other Apple-specific lots, including the Apple II: Ventless Rev 0, valued in between $20,000 and $30,000and the 1980s Apple Macintosh Team polo shirt, which is expected to sell for between 1,000 and 2,000 dollars.

Other items related to auction business include a Next performance review from 1995 signed by Jobs, believed to be worth between $6,000 and $8,000, and “Steve Jobs’ NeXT Office Personal Items” between 1,000 and 2,000 dollars. A trio of three Pixar business cards for Jobs are listed in between $2,000 and $3,000.

Bonhams’ auction of the history of science and technology, including the history of space, is open for bidding and will culminate in a live auction on 25 October.
