Identifying First Editions - The Fine Books Blog

Identifying First Editions - The Fine Books Blog | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The vast majority of noncollectors are under the impression that a first edition is identified by those two words on the copyright page. Sometimes this is indeed the case, often not. Pitfalls abound. Not only are there many methods of indicating edition, many of them cryptic, but publishers often switch from one method to another, apply them inconsistently or otherwise complicate matters to confound collectors.

Busy Hands from the 1950s – Making TV and Radio Scarfs - Blog - CollectorsQuest.com | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I found this delightful little pamphlet at an antique store and thought it was a hoot! I wondered what the grandkids would say if they called to see what I was doing and my response was “making a television scarf.” They probably would ask to talk to Papa right away, just to see if I was “off my meds.”

Book Me I’m an Addict : Collector Books For Your Information - Blog - CollectorsQuest.com

Book Me I’m an Addict : Collector Books For Your Information - Blog - CollectorsQuest.com | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I’m addicted to collector books. Our library of these books has well over one hundred different copies–some purchased early on and proved to be too broad and not deep into any one subject. I soon learned the value in spending money on great books. By now, many are well worn to the point of having loose covers, and several have been replaced with more updated versions. Most of these books have price guides, but with an ever-changing market, I only use the prices as a loose reference, adjusted for current trends in collecting and the economy.
