Get a Load of the World’s 10 Most Valuable Children’s Books

If there’s an old, out of print book I’m trying to track down, I check a few places: Powell’s used section, Ebay, and AbeBooks (do you have a favorite I don’t know about yet?).

When I was visiting AbeBooks yesterday, I came across their page for the World’s Most Valuable Children’s Books.

So here’s my challenge to you: try to guess which books might be on the list, and then click here to see if you were right.

I bet you’ll get at least a couple.

    I have a a first edition, but later printing of that Philosopher’s Stone. I knew exactly what I had, but your post still make me recheck that title page, to see if I was wrong the first 30 times I checked.
