Description

Is there a fortune sitting in your bookcase?  If you want to learn more about what makes an old book rare or valuable, then try this session on the world of antiquarian books and how to use the Library’s resources.

This class will examine an old book, look to see who else owns a copy, and review the sale records and current booksellers’ catalogs to learn about its value. You’ll also learn about the tools and resources that the antiquarian community uses to value a book.
