Rare Book Collecting on a budget
If you are new to the antiquarian rare book world, I can understand you may find it intimidating with great rarities in glass cases and high prices. However, with modest sums you can acquire some very interesting rare books from centuries past. Sure, you may not be able to purchase an illuminated manuscript or an incunable for next to nothing, but with a little digging you can find rare book treasures at affordable prices for everyone. I made another rare book Youtube chat to highlight some examples for $50/each. There is a superb 19th publisher binding, a travel book owned by a clerk to Alexander Hamilton and others. It is not a sales video and any actual sales go to the ABAA Bookseller’s Benevolent fund which helps booksellers in times of need.
