Excerpt from Book-Auction Records, Vol. 1: A Priced and Annotated Record of London Book Auctions; Part I., October 1, 1902-September 30, 1903 (Containing 14, 013 Records) By all the rules that govern commercial ventures book-audion Records should have been an utter failure. The very title of its first volume - Sale Records - was inadequate, since it did not indicate what class of saies was recorded. The editorial department - not then, I may state, under my own direction - did not give satisfaction to bibliographical experts, while, to crown all, at the very moment that I took over the editor ship myself and altered the title to its present form my health succumbed to the efl'ects of prolonged insomnia, and the publication was suspended for a whole twelvemonth. At the expiration of that time I resumed my work, and issued the volume containing the records for the season 1904-5, and, not foreseeing that the volume for 1903-4 would be called for, the new volume was styled Volume 2, in order to make the series continuous, whereas it should have been named Vol. In the sure and certain hope that its un born brother would yet be brought to life. As every subscriber knows, that volume eventually made its appearance in January 1907, and as a Volume 2 was already in existence the volume of missing records was necessarily Styled Volume 1, Part 2. In order to be self-explanatory as to its position in the series this new edition of the original volume 1 is styled Volume I, Part r. It is true the circumstances have already been stated in Volume I, Part 2, but te-iteration is necessary in order that the position of the respec tive volumes in the series may be thoroughly understood.

Excerpt from Book-Auction Records, Vol. 5: A Priced and Annotated Record of London Book Auctions What shall one say? Bricks cannot be made without straw nor Prefatory Notes without prefatory matter. Originally the sole object of this section of B.A.R. was to provide information likely to be serviceable. So, in Volume 2 indications of the method of arrangement were given, 'and in Volume 3 certain strictures respecting looseness of style in cataloguing. In volume 4 the fount began to run dry, and now, in Volume 5, it seems to have dried-up altogether. Discursions upon the auction-experiences of past twelvemonths do not appeal to me. They seem only to repeat facts already recorded in the volumes, and, like most rechauffes, to be so lukewarm and wanting in piquancy as to be un-appetising. Perhaps a review of personal editorial experiences may prove not uninteresting, and a certain receptacle into which is cast anything out of the common may repay ransacking. Let us begin with printers' errors. The following four examples provide food for diversion. Fortunately they were detected while there was yet time. One entry credited Captain John Smith - of Pocahontas fame - with having written a work on "Eno's Improvement." I wondered what the renowned captain knew about Eno's Fruit Salt, until reference showed that what was intended to be set up was "England's Improvement," published in 1670, a century and a half before the advertising chemist was born. Another instance was the title, "Cocking and its Votaries," dealing of course with cock-fighting. This had been set up as "Cooking and its Votaries." The third was "fooled sides" for "tooled sides," and the fourth was Mr. Andrew Lang's "Ballads in Glue China." A fth was Matthew Arnold's "Alaric at Rome," which appeared as ."Alaric at Home," and, not being detected, it received the distinction of print. A sixth has not yet been unearthed. The personal feeling which the publication has engendered between myself and strangers has been remarkable, and has been to me far higher reward than the commercial success which has attended it. When it is no unusual thing for persons whom you have never seen to conclude letters evincing strong interest in B.A.R. with such phrases as "with the kindest of kind regards" you feel that your subscribers and yourself are on the most desirable terms. Among the more characteristic examples may be quoted the following passages from various correspondents: "I have spent whole days studying the Vols. I have. As the ancient mariner held the wedding guest so B.A.R. holds me." About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
