Night Thoughts about the Auction (2)

It’s an intriguing situation. Dmitri and Christie’s have decided to start out low (at about half what they would get at retail), to draw us in. So, I think, most of the lots will sell. This is a total turnaround from the Tajan sale in Geneva in 2004 when Dmitri consigned too many books at extremely high estimates and absolutely nothing sold, as far as I can tell. A complete fiasco and embarrassment.

I’m certainly going to consider bidding on a few of the lots. But I’ll have to go into family financial consulting mode first.
