Dust off that old tome
This time you can bring your book to the library
NEW HAVEN - A book appraiser will visit the New Haven Public Library at 133 Elm St. from 6 to 7 p.m. Oct. 1 to help answer the question: Is your book rare...or just old?
This is a question that leads to many more questions, as book appraiser Adam Langlands will point out in a program, program organizers said. Langlands will share his wide experience of the book world, the valuation of books of all kinds, and how to research book values on the Internet. Participants are invited to bring one or two of their own treasures for possible discussion and evaluation during the program. No individual appraisals will be offered.
Langlands has worked at Christie's and other international book dealers for more than 25 years. He is currently working on a 2-volume reference work on Beatrix Potter. His specialties are natural history, travel and children's books. Langland's discussion will concentrate on collectible and antiquarian books:how to interpret what you have and how to value it. There is no charge for the program and free parking is available.
