AbeBooks.co.uk: First Edition Books
Fascinating to see these dustwrappers on AbeBooks today. I've read twenty one of the books and don't own any of them in a first edition. When it comes to books I collect, though, I always prefer to have a first. In some cases I have two copies of a book; a first without a dustwrapper and a reprint with.
Do you think there's anything special about a first edition? Or will any tatty old paperback do you?
