A Generalist's Guide to Evaluating Libraries
2020-2021 Lecture Series

Large collections of books can be daunting prospects
for the generalist appraiser. Tom Lecky, AAA will offer
insights into how to approach those seemingly endless
shelves and to identify potential rarities and value.
While sometimes the most obvious books are the least
valuable, there are times when the most unlikely suspects
are real gems. Tom will share resources to help generalists
sort through the bibliographic quagmire.
