There are several different kinds of signed books that you may come across in our sellers' listings. A signed book is exactly how it is described - the author signed their name in the book, usually on the title page. Signatures in the actual book are more highly sought after than signatures on a bookplate or page that is inserted into a book after the author signs it. Collectors prefer to own a book that the author actually held and signed, rather than one bound as a signed edition.
An inscribed book is one that contains a note from the author as well as a signature, often addressed to the person to whom the book was originally given. Some collectors prefer inscribed books, as they are personalized from the author and sometimes include a funny or interesting note. However, others would rather avoid these personalized copies when they buy signed fiction books, since inscribed books reference a person unknown to the current buyer. Whatever kind of signed editions you prefer, our sellers have a wide variety for you to choose from.
