July’s Top 10 Bestselling Signed Books
At the start of each month we take a look at AbeBooks‘ bestselling signed books of the previous month. Some appear month after month (hello, The Fault In Our Stars), some are timelessly collectible (ahem, Codex Seraphinianus) and some are brand new (The Miniaturist).
This month’s list pays tribute to the late Louis Zamperini who passed away on July 2nd at the age of 97. At age 19, Zamperini participated in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games as a long-distance runner. When WWII broke out, he joined the US Army Air Forces and served as a bombadier in the South Pacific. In April, 1943, his plane crashed in the Pacific, killing eight of the eleven crew members on board. He is the subject of Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken (no. 1 on the list). He also penned a memoir titled Devil at my Heels (no. 5).
