Upcoming Book Acutions Fall 2010

From the Wall Street Journal this morning, a quick take on upcoming books auctions. If the WSJ pays attention there must be money in those old books! And if anyone is feeling generous, today, I'd love the either of these, noted in the article. "Mary Shelley provides gothic horror with a three-volume, first edition of her "Frankenstein" (1818). This tale is considered the first work of science fiction in English literature (estimate: £60,000-£80,000). In this genre is also a first edition of Bram Stoker's "Dracula" (1897), the world's most famous vampire story, (estimate: £8,000-£12,000)."
