More on Special Collections

February 13, 2009

If you are looking for rough estimates of book values I recommend viaLibra. It searches 18 different booksellers in one search, including several international.

It is helping me get a handle on what to look for in a given volume.  Should it have illustrations, maps?  Does ours have them?  What are the different bindings on a given text. Some seller’s have pictures of the volume to the right of the description.  I’m learning a lot just by picking books that look old and looking them up.
