This guide describes everything you need to know about collecting recently published literature. Robert Wilson indicates how to identify known and emerging authors worth collecting; how to find those first editions, with a list of the various labeling styles of well-known commercial and small presses; how to spot a fake; and how to sell your collection to an institution. The appendices alone are a valuable resource for collectors, with lists covering such information as book auction firms, clubs for book collectors, and Wilson's picks for the 50 most important American books since World War II.

Product Description:
When appreciation for the written word evolves into passion, the next logical step is to collect first and rare editions. Modern Book Collecting is recognized as the definitive introduction to book collecting, with key information for both novice and veteran collectors about starting and maintaining a book collection. Focusing on books that are now most often collected - the works of late-nineteenth and twentieth century writers - Robert Wilson details what is collectible and how to make choices, how to build an author collection, how to care for books, assessing physical condition, and much more. A comprehensive list of twentieth-century author bibliographies is especially valuable, and appendices listing up-to-date sources of rare book dealers, and Wilson's choices for the fifty most important American books published in the post-war period, round out Modern Book Collecting as a thoroughly enlightened guide.
