Product description

From the Inside Flap

With millions of books listed online, the internet has become the first place to go for identifying and pricing scarce and rare first editions. However, the information needed to identify first printings and first “states” or “issues” is not always available on the internet—and what information is available online is often inaccurate or misleading. For those interested in buying or selling scarce and rare first editions Collected Books: The Guide to Identification and Values provides assurance that your offerings or purchases are bibliographically correct. Collected Books has been cited as a standard reference in American Literary Scholarship, Antique Week, Arts & Antiques, the Baltimore Sun, Barrons, Business Week, Departures, Forbes, National Enquirer, People Magazine, Southern Accent Magazine, USA Today, Washington Investor Quarterly, The Washington Post and The Washington Times, et al.
