From an article by Carla Leone in the December 2016 issue of our Newsletter:
Collectibles include first editions, out-of-print books, books signed by the author, and unique and/or beautiful volumes. These books are screened by FOL volunteers for physical condition then checked on BookFinder.com which contains descriptions and pricing for books carried by approximately 150,000 booksellers around the world. The price for FOL volumes is usually set at or below the lowest price for a comparable copy listed by BookFinder.
Collectibles are shelved in a special section during the quarterly book sales so that prospective buyers can find them easily. This location near the sale table is for the most valuable titles and oversized volumes. About 300 new titles are added for each sale divided into the following categories: Fiction, Poems, Plays, History, Science, Animals and Plants, Sports, Humor, Biography, Religion, Arts and Crafts, Music, Non-Fiction and Children.
