First Edition Book Sells For Almost $8 Million

old booksDo you have any old books lying around? Boxed in the attic? Gathering dust on a shelf?

They might be worth something!

Recently, a first edition Audubon book sold for $7.9 million.

Makes us wonder: What will happen to book collecting now that e-books are predicted to be the way of the future? Do you think the market for old hardback books will boom? Or bust?

  1. I’ll add this to my list of reasons why I will never stop buying and reading print books over e-books. The list is ever-growing.

    (Also, when I’m buying first edition books, I think anything over $3.7 million is just ridiculous. LOL)

  2. Looks like I need to start collecting old books! And I would say that the old hardcovers will become even more valuable. As industries change and the old models become rare and outdated, that’s REALLY when they start to increase in price.
