Über diesen Titel


COMPREHENSIVE AND ORGANIZED FOR EASY ACCESS, this phenomenal reference with more than 10,000 prices provides the current values for thousands of books, from the old and the rare (artist illustrated, medical, early travel, and exploration) to more modern volumes (horror, science fiction, and poetry).
THE HOTTEST AREAS OF COLLECTING, including decorative arts, architecture, and western Americana--plus all-new special chapters for this edition feature detailed information on collectible Bibles and children's books, especially children's series books!
AUTHORITATIVE AND EXTENSIVELY RESEARCHED, with professional tips on buying, selling, maintaining, and caring for your delicate, fragile treasures.
A GLOSSARY OF BOOK COLLECTING TERMS helps both novices and experts differentiate between a "quarto" and an "elephant folio"--and provides a complete mini-course in book collecting.

From the Publisher:

It's easy to run into difficulties buying old books -- the language of antiquarian bookselling alone is confusing (I knew what "dog-eared" pages were, but what about books that are "foxed"?). The 30-odd-page glossary in OFFICIAL PRICE GUIDE TO OLD BOOKS is reason alone to own a copy. And there are so many variables on which prices for old books are set. Old books can be found at every flea market and garage sale, as well as those dusty, fascinating antiquarian bookshops and second-hand bookstores. Marie Tedford -- who is a bookseller herself -- and Pat Goudey have made life easier for all us old book lovers. The guide offers concrete examples of what can make a book worth its weight in gold -- or leave it worthy only for the recycling bin.

I especially loved the chapter on children's books. Right now, my old book searches are to locate copies of the Sue Barton and Cherry Ames nurse novels from the thirties and forties. Don't ask me why I loved those nurse books so much when I was a kid -- I wanted to be an actress then, and I'm an editor now -- but years ago, before I had the advantage of having a copy of OFFICIAL PRICE GUIDE TO OLD BOOKS, I paid way too much for a copy of my very favorite picture book from when I was three or four -- THE VALENTINE CAT. Thanks to Marie and Pat, I won't make that mistake again!
