Everyone knows that the very first Harry Potter book is worth a small fortune, but there are many thousands of other books that collectors will pay good money for, and not just the obvious classics by the Brontes or Dickens. And copies are sitting neglected and unnoticed on shelves and in attics up and down the country. This title helps in the identification of these hidden treasures. Updated and expanded to over 33,000 books by more than 500 authors, this fifth edition gives an indication of values for the most collectable books in both British and American first editions. It includes classic authors from Jane Austen to Oscar Wilde, detective writers from Eric Ambler to Minette Walters, illustrators from Aubrey Beardsley to Florence Upton, and poets from Richard Aldington to Walt Whitman. This volume may help you spot a rarity nobody else has noticed, or save you from paying more than you need to for a book you are uncertain about.
