Constantine Arvanitopoulos and Konstantina E. Botsiou Europe at a Crossroads European uni?cation has rested on a dual premise. One part was the effort of the European nations to consolidate peace by overcoming the nationalism which had 1 twice drenched the continent in blood in the 20th century. War among West European states became unthinkable in the post-war era. The second part was the creation of a single European economy following the tremendous task of post-war 2 reconstruction and recovery. Over the years the achievement of economic stability was matched by initiatives that aimed to render Western Europe competitive on a global scale. The creation of the European Union (EU) in the 1990s through the Treaties of Maastricht (1992) and Amsterdam (1997), and later Nice (2001), which successively revised the founding Treaties of Rome (1957), was largely a response 3 to the challenge of globalisation. Integration ‘rejuvenated’ the nation state, thus creating the hybrid of the Euro- 4 pean welfare state, a mix of state-imposed stability and private initiative. Like its 1 Sforza, C. (1936).

Excerpt from American Book-Prices Current: A Record of Books, Manuscripts, and Autographs Sold at Auction in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, From September 1, 1899, to September 1, 1900, With the Prices Realized

The number of books sold at auction in the United States seems to be increasing year by year, and consequently the number of sales reported in American Book-Prices Current is increasing. In this volume we record 9662 lots of books and autographs, being by far the largest number recorded in any volume since the beginning of the work. It is, in fact, more than 50 percent in excess of the number of sales recorded in our initial volume, which was only 6025.

These.9662 records have been selected from something over 113, 000 lots, described in 164 catalogues, representing 279 days sales. The New York auctioneers generally hold but a single session each day. Occasionally, however, they hold two sessions, as is done also generally by the auctioneers of Boston and Philadelphia. We find that of the 279 days on which sales took place, two sessions were held on 61 days. The total number of sessions therefore was 340. Last year the total number of lots was about 102, 000, but the number of catalogues was only 117 and occupied only 250 day's sale. It would seem from this that, on the average, the sales this season, though more in number, were individually of less consequence, and this no doubt is the case. The library of Augustin Daly, comprised in its two catalogues 5263 lots. Aside from this one great sale there have been no first-class sales during the season. If the reader will glance over our chronological list, he will see that by far the majority of the catalogues described books brought together from various sources, or consigned by booksellers here or abroad, and which we designate as "Miscellaneous Collections."
