The Official Price Guide to Paperbacks & Magazines
1985, House of Collectibles. Small paperback, 4" X 5". 280 pages. A couple good articles about collecting in the front of the book, but I recommend you don't waste your time on this one. The book list is laid out by author, and only lists the books it thinks most valuable. The magazine listings seem to make more sense. There's a line of check-off blocks to keep tabs of which books and mags you've acquired.
1983. Edited by Thomas E. Hudgeons III. The House of Collectibles, Inc., Orlando, FL. 1982. Small trade paperback. 225 pages. (4 1/8 X 5 1/2). Introduction and other information on collecting at the beginning. Prices for paperbacks followed by section for the magazines. The sort of book you might carry into a bookstore when looking for certain titles. Itís really too small and incomplete to be of much help for the veteran collector. Recommended only if you collect this type book.
1984. Edited by Thomas E. Hudgeons III. The House of Collectibles, Orlando, FL. 1984 (Second Edition). Small trade paperback. 271 pages. (4 1/8 X 5 1/2). Introduction and information on collecting. Book to be used as a checkoff when searching out paperbacks and magazines. There are a few black-and-white covers throughout. Recommended only for those who are price guide completists.
1986. Consulting editors Charles and Donna Jordan. The House of Collectibles, New York. Trade paperback. 473 pages. (5ľ X 8). Much information on paper collectables by the editors. A price guide that is now very much out-of-date. Definitely not as complete as it could be. The first section covers paperbacks followed by a section covering the magazines. Recommended only if you collect price guides. It might be interesting to compare the prices in this book and others like it, with current dealer catalogues.
