The New York trade sale.
--Thursday was the last day of the book trade sale in New York.
It has continued for seven days, with sales said to average from $10,000 to $14,000 daily, or $100,000 for the whole time.
The sale has proved a disappointment.
It was believed that prices would be very low, and the sales very light, but this expectation, it is stated, has not been realized.
Not that the prices have been higher, either, but the result greatly surpassed what was looked for, and it was regarded as a highly satisfactory sale.
