Borrowing this lovely list from BookScouter, I thought this would be a good share for those starting out with book collecting – and it totally fits the Halloween theme!
If you come across an old book without an ISBN, have no fear, there are many dealers who buy and sell rare books, collectible books, and first edition books. They are listed below.
Shop a vast selection of books, art, and collectibles from independent sellers around the world.
