A Book Unfair


A book fair at the intersection of obsession and health

Booksellers, institutions and collectors look to New York City as the now and again Mecca for the high end rare book, manuscript, map and ephemera trade.  Rightly thought, given their expectations have been reaffirmed for decades, thousands flew, drove and rode to the Big Apple for the important event, The New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the New York Armory, hovering on the edge of Thursday March 5th, preparing for the opening at 5:00pm to the 4-day event pitched as the best for the very best.


Collectors arriving with comped tickets then needed to present passes to be admitted, creating a wavering line of some of the world’s most significant players gently packed perhaps a foot or two apart, perhaps already recipient of the show’s door-prize, the Coronavirus whose cousins once thinned visitors to New York during the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918-1920, killing 50 million worldwide.


For vectors and victims, a reprise seemed unlikely in the deep arches, martial paintings and soft light, bathing the genteel hail-well-met crowd whose interests, successes and occasional world-class net-worth would not shelter or respect them because of their single unifying characteristic:  age, that the incipient Coronavirus prefers weakness in the lungs of aging and aged.


The only questions for these visitors were who will I see and what staggering printed examples may they, noblesse oblige, flick desultory yeses, across the temporary glass cases dividing sellers’ gems from motivated acquirers, so to carry away a treasure or two before the victorious cross Madison Avenue to Daniel that advertises, “never disappoints,” a scant half block to celebrate bibliographical victories over French wine and cuisine.


These folks, the field’s gold standard, stacked like cord-wood at the Armory would become a science experiment to test intelligence, wealth and viewing habits because Fox was at that very moment parading Trump’s bullshit all clear while MSNBC, CNN and just about every medical professional and foreign leader were expressing anxiety that infection was looming large.


As recently as March 24th 7 attendees at the show have developed Coronavirus, some carrying it to England, Italy and elsewhere.  The likely math suggests a hundred or more cases will trace to the book fair within another month or two as these guests and dealers become unintentional vectors to new victims.


As well, Trump’s fact-less blather broadcast both to New York and distant places quickly caused the Federal government and random state and local governments to hesitate to marshal resources, allowing the ignored pandemic precious time to go nuclear to double its body count every 6 days, expecting 300,000 infections by April 1st and 650,000 in the United States by July 1st..  Now long term mortality is projecting across the human cohort worldwide to decline within two years as 100,000 wheeze in agony as 5,000,000 are infected each month.


But not yet satisfied with the damage and destruction, Trump even now repeats that churches should be jammed on Easter April 4th , where most with their crosses and Hail Mary’s are old, declining, aged and vulnerable - to be packed as sardines, while Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, 2016 Chairman of the Trump Campaign in Texas, recently called those of age 70 and above expendable. 


Today infections in the United States are projected to reach above 140 million Americans and visitors in a matter of years even as Trump encourages the Fox faithful to play vector and victim, his new board game.  The vast majority will recover and gain incremental immunity.  Vaccines being hypothesized and alternative medicines may mitigate.  We’ll need both because the average age of those in the line at the New York Antiquarian Book Fair was north of 60 too, that anecdotally is when the possibility of death from the Coronavirus rises from .00001 when the victim is young and healthy, while, above 60 the expectation is 1/100 to 70 to 3/100 to 6/100 in 80.  In other words the greatest advocates of the extraordinary field of collectible paper may too be swept away.  Who knew TV would kill.


While the crisis is cascading, I would like to see a plaque on the Armory walls, both outside and in, honoring these victims, that the voiceless do not go nameless.  They came so recently here with high expectation, in love with the material, and certainly in love with life.  That they were damaged by a lying president they too should demand he too pay at the ballot box.  To do so, at every county, town or on random city corners a plaque on such places may remember they who passed, as was once called Potter’s Hill, those places of random memorial should be called Trump’s Hill, as reminders that stupidity, incompetence and indifference are stealing the human spark that animates life.

Dear Bruce,

The stupidity, incompetence and indifference are yours my friend - not Donald Trumps. Your hatred and venom are dripping within this article. You are only stoking the fires of division
in America with your ad hominem attacks. We also now know the virus attacks all age groups - not just the elderly.
Donald Trump did not create this virus; and he has obviously done all within his power to halt its ravages across the land. His positive attitude is often misunderstood, distorted and maligned by those filled with hatred and negativity - such as is obvious in this case. People were, and are, contracting the virus nearly everywhere - not just at a book fair.
This is not the proper venue for you to spew forth your caustic political views. This is supposed to be a refuge and source of information for those who love the world of rare books. We come here to get away from the political acid pool - not to be thrown into it.

Hey Bruce,
Though your rhetoric was a bit on the flowery side, your comments were very true and those who still walk around with their heads up their posteriors obviously are those who are responsible for putting the worst president in history into the White House. We have had our bookstore closed 3 weeks today and it is tough. Anyone who thinks this terrible virus can't be human-to-human transmitted it just not paying attention to facts and is probably going to get it and wonder why.

bagget and dusty books: Are you aware of the irony here? You are defending a president who does NOT read ANY books and values money over knowledge. He also doesn’t understand antiques and why older, original furniture has more value than cheap reproductions. He absolutely doesn’t get it. And as for Fox News, it has a right-wing bias, the bias of its owner, a right-wing Australian. Fox News viewers are also NOT readers. They don’t even read “that thar” Bible. They subscribe to ludicrous conspiracy theories and vote against their own interests. They hate health insurance. They hate themselves and want all Americans to be as miserable as they are. They are angry Whites, who don’t understand the world and this hate it. By the way, Trump hates you!

Trump hates book dealers and books. Why would anyone here support him? Be honest! He hates absolutely book dealers and you people still support him? Why? He can’t even say which Bible verses he likes the best. He doesn’t get it.

He inherited his money and hates poor people. He cheats his employees and contractors. He hires illegal immigrants. He mocked a disabled reporter. And yet you still support him because you are racist White people who can’t accept that Whitey White dominated America is coming to an end. Where will you go? The Voortrekker Age is behind us.

Very good, as a English Book dealer who loves politics, but hates political parties. It is refreshing to read such a good article about Trump and the virus. He is what we used to call a great con artist, Very good talker but not interested in facts when fiction sounds much better. Most likely very well educated but logically stupid, We had Tony Blair who was very similar, who led us to a war which led to destruction and hatred that is still with us today. Regards M

Your assertion that "The vast majority wil recover and gain incremental immunity" is pure speculation. There is no evidence yet to corroborate that. The Covid-19 virus is part of a group of viruses similar to the common cold. Suffering from the common cold during the winter does not imply that you won't get it again. So until we get a vaccine we are potentially exposed to the possibility of catching the Covid-19 virus again & again, particularly as it is so contagious. As of today 111 Covid-19 discharged patients in South Korea have been re-admitted to hospital having been re-infected in the community !

For all of the myopic Trumpites who attacked Bruce; This, Bud is for you! Bruce didn't insert politics into his piece. He injected pragmatic humanity into it. While nobody knows how bad the Virus will be; the FACT is that Trump was warned about this back in January. To support Collectors and Collecting, one must first keep alive collectors who then can pursue collecting and other passions like breathing without a respirator.

Are some of you brain dead, misanthropic, goose stepping, elitist, Sociopathic, ignoramuses [Rhetorical] ?

I have been in the field for 55 of my 60 years. Just because you take an interest in books and paper, doesn't mean that you are an intellectual!

To those Trumpite sheep who commented here about bringing "Politics" into the article; Well, what do you know [nothing] ? You injected your politics on this site, as well.

I spoke to Trump's kindergarten teacher years ago. I asked her how she could remember one student out of thousands. Her response was "You never forget a kid like Donnie Trump". We spoke for 45 minutes and here follows a summary of what.she said:

1) He stole all of her money from her pocketbook and Mrs. Trump was the one to alert her to the little bad seed that was her son.

2) He couldn't be paired up with anyone and he particularly bullied other little boys

3) She termed him below average intelligence (obvious every time he opens his mouth.

If you don't like Bruce's article, then go spend a fortune and create a database of your own, which takes thousands of hours.
