Swann Swinging for the Fences

- by Bruce E. McKinney


A busy month at Swann

March has been transformed from a quiet month for rare books and historic paper into an important month, the cause the shift of the ABAA Fair at the Armory from an April to a March event to accommodate scheduling issues at the Armory.  As a result the March auctions at Swann’s look increasingly like marquee events as they match up with the unusually strong audience the book fair brings together.
