Book Collecting 2000: A Comprehensive Guide
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.
