Collecting First Editions and Reprints
It is amazing to find copies of the first edition of Cut Out offered for US$39.95 to US$69.31.
I wish I had kept a stock of these early first editions. The print runs were small. It would have made for a good pension plan substitute.
What is even stranger is to find reprints of A Killing Smile selling for US$34.95.
With information about widely available on the Internet for all books, buyers now have a much better idea whether the price for a “rare” book is the market price.
I am a book collector myself and have first editions of several Graham Greene, including The End of The Affair, along with signed copies from friends such as Timothy Mo, Stephen Leather and Barry Eisler
