Streeter Sale on "BookTV"

Travis points out that C-SPAN2's "BookTV" program ran a segment this weekend on the Frank Streeter auction, which took place back in April to much fanfare. Travis writes: "Streeter died shortly after arranging with the auction house to sell his library. C-SPAN interviewed several people affiliated with both Streeter and Christie’s both before and after the sale. Those interviews (or, at least, the parts of them we got to see) were quite interesting and made me wish I had a Tivo."

Thankfully the episode is available online, here (I'd have been very impatiently waiting for a t.v. rerun otherwise!). I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but am very much looking forward to it.
