What are Signed Books?

Book inscriptions or books with signatures are simply books that had the author, the owner of the book  or someone else related to the book content, signing one of the first pages. 

Signatures are usually in the frontend pages (the first blank pages immediately after opening the front cover), the first blank pages (blank pages that sometimes exist after the frontend pages), first title page, full title page (title plus more information about the book, name of the publisher, etc). 

What are Autograph Books?

The term "autograph book" usually refers to autograph albums, or blank books where people sign with or without a message. It is a way to collect autographs, storing them all in one simple volume with blank pages. 


Do people still have autograph books? If we speak about autograph albums, then not so much. They were very common from the 1850s all the way through the 1950s, and have since then decayed in popularity, rarely used today.


Autograph book could also (less commonly) refer to a printed book (novel, essay, biography, etc) that was signed by author, or someone else.

Autographed Books Value

It is determined by supply and demand, like everything else, added to condition. A book that has the author signature is at least 2 times more valuable than an unsigned copy of the exact same book, usually sells for much more than 2 times, depending on the demand, the amount of those author signed books existing, whether it is a first edition or not, and the condition it is in. To get an estimated idea of autographed books value you will need to browse around and see how much it sells for.

Keep in mind that those are asking prices, so they are a wish, and only past/realized prices are a reliable guidance when determining the value in your signed books for sale.

Book inscriptions by present or previous owners tend to decrease the value, except when the owner is a celebrity and the signature has some value itself, or there is an interesting connection between signer and the author or with the book content.

What do you Autograph in a Book?

Most signed books are signed on the full title page, or on the title page - some are signed in the frontend pages (blank pages joining the back of the front cover with the book body). Books are very rarely signed on the front cover or anywhere else inside the book.
