Every book collector has felt the frustration of ignorance. How does he know a book isn’t overpriced? Is this book really a first edition? Was it issued with a dust jacket? Is it really scarce or is such a description just a sales tactic? Booksellers usually have more knowledge about their offerings. But even the most experienced booksellers can’t know every point about every book.
Terry Seymour has solved these problems for collectors and sellers of Everyman’s Library. His Guide will answer every conceivable question about every book in this vast publication project. Here in a single reference are descriptions of every aspect of book design in all the variations from the Library’s inception in 1906 through 1976.
The book also discusses scarcity and pricing, the two most crucial issues to both collectors and sellers.
