The University Library is pleased to announce online access to a new resource:  American Book Prices Current (ABPC) Online


Published since 1895, American Book Prices Current is an annual record of books, manuscripts, autographs, maps, and broadsides sold at auction, which is the standard tool used by dealers, appraisers, auction houses, scholars and tax authorities for buying, selling and evaluating these materials based on actual figures realized at auction.   Regions covered include North America and the UK, with sales from such other countries as Switzerland, Germany, Monaco, Holland, Australia and France.   The online version covers items sold at auction from September 1975 to date.  Previously available online only from individual workstations at the Special Collections Library and Clements Library, access is now available campus-wide across all three University of Michigan campuses.
