Miller’s Collecting Modern Books
By Catherine Porter

Everything you need to know about collecting British and American books from the late 19th century to the present is included, from established classics that have stood the test of time to the instant successes of today. There are chapters on all of the major areas: literature, children's, illustrated, fine printing, and binding, each explaining the factors that influence value. Special features focus on the life and work of key authors and illustrators from Arthur Conan Doyle to J.K. Rowling, and there are boxes highlighting popular collecting areas. Dust jackets, illustration processes, and collecting manuscripts and original artwork are also covered, and comprehensive practical collecting information is given, including a guide to where to buy and sell books and a glossary of technical terms. Over 350 books are illustrated and valued.

Whether you want to collect "from the heart", concentrating on a favourite author or period, or if you are looking for "highspots", the key books from across the century, Collecting Modern Books will provide with you all the information you need.
