Do you guys own any valuable or rare books? I mean of significant monetary value.
I would really be surprised if anyone could hawk a translation of War & Peace for that much.
You could buy a ton of first editions that will appreciate in value at 8x the rate of that book for 3000 GBP
I don't really know, desu. I have an original-ish Catcher in the Rye but it's not 1st edition. I also have a 1st edition For Whom The Bell Tolls but without the dust jacket (so very much reduced in worth). I thought I had a 1st edition In Cold Blood but it turns out its a 1st Book Club edition.
I have an original V, TCoL49 and GR (paperback). They all go for about 200-500 bucks, which is horribly inflated.
Here they are along with all my other pinecones.
