For the week ending on Saturday, the 8th of September, 9 auctions were archived to the Rare Book Hub Transaction Database, 7 in U.S. dollars, and one each in British pounds and Mexican pesos.

There were 4,677 lots offered while 4,309 sold, for a 92% sell-through rate. The average lot price was $304. The high sell-through rate and low average order reflect the lower sample size.
