"Feed your inner bibliophile with this volume on unearthed rare and antiquarian books. Few collectors are as passionate or as dogged in the pursuit of their quarry as collectors of rare books. In Rare Books Uncovered, expert on rare and antiquarian books Rebecca Rego Barry recounts the stories of remarkable discoveries from the world of book collecting. Read about the family whose discovery in their attic of a copy of Action Comics No. 1--the first appearance of Superman--saved their home from foreclosure. Or the Salt Lake City bookseller who volunteered for a local fundraiser--and came across a 500-year-old copy of the Nuremberg Chronicle. Or the collector who, while browsing his local thrift shop, found a collectible copy of Calvary in China--inscribed by the author to the collector's grandfather. These tales and many others will entertain and inspire casual collectors and hardcore bibliomaniacs alike"-- "Discoveries of rare and collectible books are chronicled in stories from both casual and die-hard book collectors"--… (més)

Short anecdotes on some intriging finds. Suitable for any audience. ( )

Great read for bibliophiles & those seeking lost treasures of bookish bent ( )

NB: Not an official review, since I read the book in draft and the author is the editor of a publication for which I write.

That said, this collection of short essays on unexpected book finds will be catnip to anyone interested in book collecting in even the most basic way, and should make everyone look at books a little differently. You never know when you're going to unearth a gem! ( )

Intriguing and inspiring collection of short anecdotes from contemporary book people about finding something truly special. In today's environment in which even those who enjoy texts tend to devalue the physical book form, this reminder of the value of the culture of the book can be restorative. ( )
