A fine question, and I don't have my pile of references handy for accuracy. I don't remember there being any one specific sale or auction where his library was sold off. There were certainly some bulk sales made to dealers both when he was alive (moving to smaller quarters) and by the family later, but there are no catalogs (auction or dealer) for any significant part of his library in one sale.
