27 Auctions Archived this week, 22 Upcoming

For the week ended Saturday March 19th 27 auctions were archived to the Rare Book Hub Database:  8 denominated in euros, 6 in British pounds, and 13 in US dollars.  Turnover was $10,849,934 as 12,698 lots were offered and 7,710 sold for a 61% success rate.  Sales were a bit spotty, - political unrest in Europe and Trumpism in the United States, the logical culprits.
