Description: From Library Journal
This first revision since the original 1991 edition by the Ahearns, notable rare book dealers and authors of Book Collecting: A Comprehensive Guide (Putnam, 1995. 2d ed.), will prove a valuable resource for almost all public libraries. They have increased the entries by nearly 5000, offering about 20,000 prices for the most widely collected modern first editions and first American printings of works in English. Obviously, no single-volume work can offer comprehensive coverage, and the Ahearns concentrate their attention here on fiction as well as offerings in Americana, literature, children's books, natural history, and travel. Also, they provide just a single estimated price for each edition, assuming that books printed since 1950, for instance, will be in fine condition with original dustwrapper, meaning that the estimates tend to appear high at times. While this limits the book's usefulness, space constraints necessitate selectiveness. Large libraries may prefer Gale's "Bookman's Price Index" series, but this is the best single-volume source for small and medium libraries.?Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
