Swann Galleries is Listed as the Dominant American Book Auction House in the $500 to $10,000 Range

The Americana Exchange, a well regarded San Francisco-based website that tracks book auction prices, recently released a detailed analysis of the 2008 market, covering 78 auction houses across the world, including all major American houses. According to their statistics, Swann was the dominant U.S. book auction house for the $500 to $10,000 rangeĀ in 2008.

The Americana Exchange's analysis only covers what they consider book auctions, not art auctions. They included most of Swann's sales last year, including posters and photographs. Americana Exchange subscribers can view the supporting charts at the Americana Exchange's website.
