Rare Signed Books Rare & Antiquarian Books

For most serious book collectors, a connection to the original source of the work is what they seek. A first edition is one of the earliest, and therefore, most original versions of a written work. A signature creates an even greater connection. The same hand that wrote the book signed it as evidence, or the subject of a biography attests to its validity with their name.
