Numbers do not always tell the whole story but when the number is the quantity of scheduled auctions in the books, manuscripts, maps and ephemera category for a specific month we can make comparisons to the past five years.  Going into 2014 for January we have 54 events, for past 5 years 36, 20, 18, 24 and 19.  It suggests some early strength.
