The Learning Curve

New tricks for an old dog.

Little Leather Library miniature books

Update: In May 2007 I wrote a blog post about a 2004 website of mine, regarding the research I’d done on the Little Leather Library Company of New York and the tiny books they sold during the years just before and following Word War I. The original post is here, but since I moved the 2004 web site about the Little Leather Library to a new location, here, I have updated the links at both locations, so as to reduce the annoyance of obsolete information and any plague of dead links that might result.

The only people who research the Little Leather Library collection of antique books are those who have the duty of cleaning out someone else’s collected estate. The books look valuable, and the two burning questions are: 1. “What are Little Leather Library books worth?” and, 2. “How do I sell a Little Leather Library book collection?”

Neither of those two question are directly answered on my Little Leather Library web page. Rather, you will there learn of the books meaning and significance, but I’ll answer the questions here.

The only way to sell Little Leather Library books are on eBay, to a dealer, or to a collector. The books are not all the same, and they are not all fabricated to the same level of professionalism. The have different levels of scarcity and market value, but the market is not well-organized and specific information is rare. The books are worth whatever you can get for them at any point in time.
