Book Description

21 Jun 2000
Bookdealing For Profit has not only been written for everyone who harbours the idea of becoming a bookdealer - but for all those in the trade who wish to get to grips with technology and make a better living. Paul Minet, one of country's leading antiquarian booksellers, sets out the philosophy behind the business - and looks into the future.

The traditional secondhand and antiquarian book trade is undergoing rapid change. The effect of the Internet has been, and is, enormous but, in many ways, it is already ahead of the new book trade in its use. It is having a major effect on how the trade buys and sells books. So where is the Internet taking the trade? How can bookdealers and booksellers gain most from this new provision? In addition to the Internet, `books-on-demand' technology offers dealers many new opportunities with which to diversify, even becoming a publisher.

Frequently asked questions are addressed: whether nowadays to work full-time or part-time? whether to trade from a shop or from home? why trade in specialist subjects anyway? The book also covers new techniques in valuing stock, why traditional abbreviations in descriptions should disappear; even the future for the new book is debated.

Bookdealing for Profit is essential reading. Every bookdealer should take time to read the advice and observations.
