Pacific Book Sales Chart

Pacific Book Sale Below Low Estimate Unsold In Estimate range Over High Estimate
Groff 57% 15% 23% 5%
Ronan 57% 18% 13% 12%
Blair 45% 15% 17% 23%
Lyon 46% 2% 32% 22%
Fox 50% 14% 28% 8%

Note this table is a rough estimate. I have included the 15% buyers premium so
even more items would have failed to meet the respective benchmarks. I have
undoubtly made minor mistakes in calculation but the fact that in general the
estimates at PBA are too high is clear. It is also clear that the Lyon and
Blair auctions outperformed the most recent counterculture auction. The Fox
sale falls somewhere in between.
