About this Item

(4) 119 (13) pp, preface, I. Money and Books; II. The Golden Days; III. The Modern Book-Hunter; IV. Ten Years Hence or Less; V. Unconsidered Trifles; VI. Rough Diamonds; VII. Rules to Follow; VIII. To the Reader. First Edition, 1891. "This is essentially a work for the book-hunter. In it I have endeavoured to point clearly and concisely to those classes of books which are now but little thought of, but which should rise in valus in the near future, and also to those books of present value which though of mean appearance, are likely to be met with on stalls of the dealers. To the principles upon which books of all kinds derive their value and importance are also stated and discussed. In each of these respects the work is unique." from the Preface. Only the slightest edge wear with age- toned text block edges, lighlty foxed fore-edge of some page, else, no wear. Clean tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Green cloth with gilt lettering to front board and spine. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 000782
