For serious book collectors, the closer a publication is to the author’s hand, the more valuable it is. So a first edition, first printing is more valuable than the 90th edition. Obviously an author’s signature is proof it was actually in his or her hand! Even those of us who are not serious collectors though get a thrill when an author we admire and read enthusiastically took the time to sign the book we are also holding. It is a personal connection, and it is just special.
We have signed copies and first editions through out the store, and one special shelf of the more collectable volumes. Wouldn’t a signed copy by a beloved author make a great gift? Come in and see what we have!
