Ken will discuss the value of old and rare books.

Ken, a rare book specialist and appraiser who is frequently seen on national TV, will talk in part about the history of his historic bookshop (www.brattlebookshop.com/about: http://www.brattlebookshop.com/about), which goes back to circa 1825. He is a second-generation owner.

Ken will talk about and show some of his favorite finds and describe some of the joys of the “hunt,” as well as explain what makes a book go up in value. He has many fascinating anecdotes to share as well as guidelines for what to look for when starting a collection. There is also a Q&A session before the conclusion of his talk. **Following the talk and question-and-answer session, Ken will give free verbal appraisals of books participants have on hand** or will do so at his shop in Boston at a later scheduled date. Please forward images (including the title page, if it is a book) of what you wish to have appraised to
