I have been collecting First Edition Books for almost 15 years. My passion began after I read (for the second time) a series of books by my favourite Author the incomparable Patrick O'Brian. Patrick's Aubrey-Maturin Series of Naval Historical Fiction is, for me, the best fiction ever written. I decided to collect the series and then as they became more expensive I decided to collect other Authors that I enjoyed and the bug was well and truly caught.. To some extent I am a victim of my own 'pickiness' in that I do not put anything into my Collection that is anything less than Fine apart from one or two older titles (the vast majority of my books would be classed as Very Fine) I think this is the only way to be with a pastime where 'condition is everything'
