“Mistakes Were Made”By Brian Cassidy, Bookseller
“Mistakes Were Made”
To mark my tenth anniversary as a book dealer, I’ve gathered all of the unsold material from my first five catalogues into one 64-item e-catalogue. But this is not exactly a sale list. Rather, the catalogue attempts to expose and describe the misjudgments that contributed to each item’s sadly unsold state. There are overvalued association copies, neglected scrapbooks, under-appreciated poetry, and ignored modern art. All formerly so, I hope. But mistakes were made: pandering, bias, infatuation, fetishization, inexperience, ignorance, confusion, impatience…I really am terribly sorry.
