In our FABS Spring Online Event, Boston-based Brattle Book Shop proprietor/television appraiser Kenneth Gloss talks about some of his favorite finds and describes some of the joys of “the hunt.” He explains what makes books and manuscripts rare and what determines whether they increase in value. He has many fascinating anecdotes to share about private and institutional collecting, as well as guidelines for starting a collection. There is a Q&A session before the conclusion of his talk, which is followed by appraisals.
