Format: Paperback
No, this book is very poor as a quick reference book. If you are interested in a particular genre then it is a fair guide. The Price Guide is divided into 13 sections and it is not easy to find what you are looking for. Sometimes you need to trawl through all sections to find that the book you are looking for is not referenced at all. What this book needs is a compound index to lead the user to the right section/book/illustrator. I would not recommend this book to a fellow book collector until such index has been added.
To its credit it does have a list of pseudonyms and a signature guide; 5 stars for this.
Be aware than this is an American publication.

Saved Grandma's Treasures! A Great Investment! 19 Sept. 2003
By "all4gizmo" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A close friend recommended Mr. Russell's book when Grandma died and I had to take care of her estate which included thousands of books.I was clueless about books.Several "reputable" book stores in our area wanted to buy everything for pennies. I knew Grandma had spent thousands of dollars on her books that she loved dearly.So, I read Mr. Russell's book,studied the pictures, and started to learn the simple basics of collecting in language that I could understand. I realized that there were authors that Grandma read who had had their books banned.There were books that she owned by Ernest Trueblood and Edith Van Dyne which were pseudonyms for William Faulkner and L. Frank Baum.(Actually,it would have been helpful if there had been more information about the Oz books.) So,instead of getting ripped off and losing everything that Grandma had cherished for many years,I kept all of her books.Now, I can go into those same bookstores and buy books for pennies that are worth hundreds of dollars.Thank you for sharing your knowledge,Mr. Russell

A Guide That's Worth the Money 22 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
So many times I have purchased books that promise the information I will need to be knowledgable about a subject. And so many times it is an empty promise.
Antique Trader Book Collector's Price Guide makes no empty promises. It's filled with accessible information that informs the reader on this complex subject. I've not found one easier to use.
If you are interested in collecting or selling books, this guide belongs in your library.

A Good Addition.... 30 Jan. 2006
By Michael S. Dobson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Lighten up a little, guys. The book is THREE years old, fer chrissakes! NO book, even Ahreans, is going to cover everything AND continually be up-to-date on the fluctuations of the market (and market values), but each reference book you purchase adds a little something to your knowledge based, and this one does as well. The chapter on pseud.s adds yet another dimension to the book seller's (and/or collector's) knowledge.

Makes it quick and easy to use this as a take-along tote for flea market ventures. 14 Oct. 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The expanded new edition of a classic book collector's market guide provides full color and plenty of detail, updating prices for over 5,000 books and using charts to help identify first editions --which can be a tricky process, as publisher's marks vary from publisher to publisher. A new chapter on children's books has been added, while Top Ten lists of rarities and an alpha listing by author makes it quick and easy to use this as a take-along tote for flea market ventures.

Well Researched, Tons of Information 19 Sept. 2003
By Laurel M. Stavros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed the price guide. Not only a listing of prices, the book's introductions to each category are insightful, well-written and provide other bookseller's thoughts on collecting.
The book is very well researched and the category on banned books is thorough, and the pen names of various authors was interesting, who knew some of these existed?? Certainly, Russell did, and I look forward to other editions as well researched and written as this one.
My only suggestion for the guide is I wished a children's literature section was available within it(perhaps, for future guides? :) Other than that, I recommend this book for collectors, wannabe collectors, writers and readers.
