Allen Ahearn (au). This guide to book collecting covers everything: from the fundamentals of the trade -- how to begin a collection, where to find books, what to look for -- to the finer points, such as “knowledgeable buying,” price variances, & investment potential. In addition, the guide includes an extensive list of “first books” for 3,500 authors, & provides estimated values for each title (in 1989 prices). It explains what to collect: how to identify first editions, proofs & advance copies, limited & paperback editions; pricing variances: how condition, age, & other factors determine a book’s value; & building a collection: how to develop & care for it & determine its worth. Also: useful information on first-edition identification & authors’ pseudonyms.
