Guide to First Edition Prices: 2006/7 by Ray B. Russell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This sixth edition, of R.B. Russell's "Guide to First Edition Prices" now includes over 600 colour illustrations. Compiled for collectors, bookdealers and all who love literature, this indispensable volume provides a guide to the value of 35,000 sought-after books. Everyone knows that the first edition of the first Harry Potter book fetches a high price, but there are thousands of other books that collectors will pay good money for, and not just the obvious classics. The Tartarus Press "Guide to First Edition Prices" will help in the identification of these hidden treasures. 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. More than 600 authors and artists are represented, in British and American first editions, limited editions and important, collectable reprints. All entries have been updated and expanded. Titles published after 1920 are assigned values with and without dust-jackets, almost doubling the total number of suggested values to over 58,000. Each author in the main section of the book is briefly appraised, and a full bibliographical listing of their works given. This edition also includes a number of useful appendices: Single Title Entries; References and Individual Author Bibliographies; Pseudonyms; and 100 Classic First Editions of the 20th Century Winners of The Nobel Prize for Literature, The Booker Prize and the Pulitzer Prize.
