Many people believe that collectors seek only rare (therefore, expensive) books, or that only “first editions” are collectible; that any book printed before 1900 is rare, or that book collecting is always a good investment. Back by popular demand, Richard McElroy and David Warrington will once again seek to dispel such misconceptions. They will provide participants with a basic overview on how to form a meaningful collection of printed materials and how to determine what monetary value, if any, a particular book may have.
Participants may bring to the program one of their own books for guidance on how to determine its significance and value. Also feel free to bring a laptop or other internet device.
Registration is free, but required and limited to 15. Please register here.
The program will be held in the 4th Floor Conference Room at the Robbins Library.
