What is a Collectible Book?

The books that are placed into our Collectibles store include rare, out-of-print, vintage titles and even items signed by the author or illustrator. You can browse all first editions, all signed copies, or peruse collectibles by genre by using our search filters. What makes the Collectibles at ThriftBooks extra-special are our rare book experts who inspect and research these items. These experts use their decades of specialization and education in rare books (plus their sheer passion for the printed word!) to find the treasures in our stock and get them the care and attention they deserve. They even photograph the books so that you are seeing the exact item you will get. These experts have chosen all of the items you see on this page, hand-selecting their favorite of these treasures to share with you.

Featured Item: Nineteen Eighty-Four, 1949 Edition

Take home a vintage copy of George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece. This American edition was printed in 1949 by Harcourt, Brace & World Inc., its first year of publication in both England and the United States. Nearly 75 years later, Orwell’s final and most famous work continues to resonate and be read the world-over, often deemed one of the best books of all time.
