Cloth, 8vo, xxiii, 1087 pp. "As its users know, ABPC is not just a transcribed record of titles and prices, copied unquestioningly from the season’s auction catalogues. It is, on the contrary, the only work in English in which every listing of printed material has been checked as to title, format, date of publication, edition, and limitation. Bindings are described, with condition when relevant, and whenever possible maps and plates in books are verified. Moreover, sales of autographs and manuscripts are reported. Because of this, ABPC is an essential tool for buying, selling and evaluating books, serials, autographs, manuscripts, broadsides, and maps, based on actual figures realized at auction. In the words of a reviewer in The limes Literary Supplement, it is "an accurate, indispensable tool for the antiquarian bookseller and collector. American Book Prices Current is composed of two parts. Part 1, Autographs & Manuscripts, includes original illustrations for printed books, documents, letters, typescripts, corrected proofs, signed photographs, and signatures, as well as manuscripts. Part II, Books, includes broadsides, single-sheet printings, maps, and charts and uncorrected proof copies of books. .Individual works are.include: Title; place & date of publication; edition designation; number of volumes when more than one; size; binding; condition of binding; descriptive material; limitation notes, and the sale record - auction houses (in code), date or number of sale, lot number, price and purchaser (buyers’ names are given when and as listed in price lists.) There are cross-references to Club or Press books, to books bound together, and to books by more than one author." - from the introduction. Very Good. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-15333
