VJ Books Presents First Edition Books!

In the simplest terms, a first edition is the first commercially distributed version of a book. For the purposes of modern collectible books, first edition is shorthand for the first printing of the first edition of a work. First editions are prized because they are as close as a reader can get to the source and remain the choice for most collectors.

While VJ Books' main focus is to offer the collector signed first edition copies of titles by their favorite authors, we also stock a wide selection of unsigned first editions.

These first edition books for sale are no less valuable than their signed counterparts - many are more rare and harder to find - and many authors are simply no longer in a position to autograph their books.

Take a look and see the rare and collectible books in our inventory.
