Even the most worn and battered copy of a book is deemed valuable when it bears the signature of a president or other celebrity. There is a long tradition of American presidents signing autobiographies, portraits, and official ceremonial documents, and many of them are quite collectible. If you book collection features a section on the Cold War, you would definitely be interested in books or autobiographies signed by American President Ronald Reagan or Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev. Further, books inscribed by presidents also carry particular value, as they often contain unique and special messages to the recipient.

Even if a book does not feature a presidential signature of approval, books and ephemera signed or inscribed by celebrities or other notable writers or artists are also highly collectible. Our booksellers have amassed an impressive collection of books signed by painters, athletes, and musicians, and any of these books would add color and diversity to your collection.
