The Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair starts tonight at Hynes Convention Center. For those of you that are into old books, this is the place to be. It's funny that this is coming up because just last week I bought a first edition of I am Legend - the book that has a movie coming out soon with Will Smith. If I had known, I would have waited to see what kind of deal I could get at the fair.

The fair is now in its 31st year and also features maps, atlases, autographs, and prints. What I really want is a first edition English version of The Count of Monte Cristo, but the going rate for one of those is $10K.

Over 120 rare book dealers from the United States, England, Germany and The Netherlands are expected to exhibit and sell rare, collectible and antiquarian books, modern first editions, manuscripts, autographs, maps, atlases, and a plethora of other literary ephemera. Fine and decorative prints will also be featured.

Is anyone out there into collecting books? Do they appreciate in value much? What's the most valuable book that you have? Tickets are $15 for the entire weekend or $8 per day. Click (here) to go to the official website for more info.
