Book Collecting 2000

A Comprehensive Guide

By Allen Ahearn

A brand-new, expanded handbook of estimated market values of first printings of first books, revised and updated for the new millennium.

Like its previous editions--hailed as "the standard guide to market worth" (The Washington Post) and "required reading" (Southern Living)--Book Collecting 2000 is more than a simple listing.

It is an exhaustive guide to the basics and finer points of book collecting and the book trade for novice and professional collectors, as well as dealers and librarians. It identifies which books to collect, where and how to buy them, and how to judge their condition and care for them, and provides a glossary of trade terms and lists of dealers.



Book Collecting 2000 also features an introduction looking back over the century, and an examination of how the Internet is affecting both collecting and pricing; and it includes estimated prices for some 6,000 first books, comparing the pricing for the same titles in 1989 and 1995. Notes.
