1 Edition Books For Sale on 1stDibs

An assortment of 1 edition books is available at 1stDibs. Each of these unique 1 edition books was constructed with extraordinary care, often using paper, animal skin and leather. There are 1718 antique and vintage 1 edition books for sale at 1stDibs, while we also have 88 modern editions to choose from as well. 1 edition books have been produced for many years, with earlier versions available from the 18th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 21st Century. 1 edition books are generally popular furniture pieces, but Modern, Mid-Century Modern and Victorian styles are often sought at 1stDibs. Many 1 edition books are appealing in their simplicity, but TASCHEN, David Hockney and Pablo Picasso produced popular 1 edition books that are worth a look.

Finding the Right Books for You

Antique and vintage books add a sense of culture and style to any room. Displaying these types of books in your living room or reading nook can warm a space with a distinguished feel.

Several factors make antique books highly desirable. Original jackets, ornate binding, illustrations and quality of the print all contribute to making a vintage book special. Rare books are of great interest to collectors in the know and can command high prices at auction. In 2021, an important early artist book by Andy Warhol sold at auction for more than $106,000. Somewhere between all the commercial work he did as an ambitious young graphic designer in the early 1950s and his first real debut as a Pop artist a decade later, Warhol produced a trove of incredibly charming drawings. His illustrated self-published artist books from the 1950s are very rare.

Many collectors seek the first edition of certain books. Fewer copies of a book and higher demand make it a rare find. A book that contains the author’s signature also makes it much more prized than other examples of the same title.

Collectors and designers decorate rooms with vintage books for a cozy feeling in a home. Coffee-table books, such as those featuring photography and design, serve as conversation pieces or offer a relaxing moment when leafed through.

Interior designers look for vintage books when they want to add color or detail. For instance, leather-bound books can create a scholarly air while mid-century titles offer a modern edge. Vintage international books or first editions can provide a sense of history.

No matter the genre, there is a book for you. You can find rare, one-of-a-kind antique books on 1stDibs. Browse by authors, like celebrated architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright and Edgar Rice Burroughs, as well as by period, including mid-century modern, Art Deco and Victorian.
