Interesting Podcast. Harry briefly mentioned book dust jackets and I would like to add that dust jackets are a critical component with 1st edition books. First editions are out there, but finding older titles with a crisp, intact dust jacket is a real challenge. Collectors pay a premium for them!
I HAVE THREE BOOKS WRITTEN BY ANDREW CARNEGIE. ONE IS AMERICANFOUR-IN-HAND IN BRITAIN. WITH A NOTE WTITTEN BY CARNEGIE TO A HELEN SWIFT. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS PUBLISHED BY CHARLES SCRIBNER`S SONS IN 1888. I WAS WONDERING IF IT WOULD BE WORTH ANYTHING. THANK YOU FRAN O`HALLORAN
