April’s Top 10 Most Expensive Sales on AbeBooks

Our top 10 most expensive book sales list for April is topped by the poetry of none other than Emily Dickinson.

Dickinson was unheralded during her lifetime but today, 127 years after her death, the poet’s work is treasured by collectors. Three volumes of her poetry were sold last month on AbeBooks and became our most expensive sale of the year so far at $30,000.

Our top 25 list also includes a famous rabbit, a master sleuth, an Orwellian nightmare in red and a Gatsby.

See the whole list.
