This study for bookdealers, or beginners, gives the practical details of the trade. It is aimed at four main groups: those wanting to start in business; those who would like to convert a book-collecting hobby into a full- or part-time enterprise; those recently made redundant or retired early who would like to put their nest-egg to profitable use; and existing bookdealers who would like to know more about using the Internet profitably, training staff or expanding their businesses. Topics in Part 1 include the various options available, where to obtain stock, pricing and pricing policy, how to publicize yourself and your business, trade organizations, publications and reference works, and simple repairs. Part 2 provides detailed guidance on business planning for both starting and running a small business with the emphasis on cash-flow and profit, and how to present a case for finance to a bank manager. Part 3 gives an introduction to the Internet, covering e-mail, designing, using and publicizing your own website, the importance of on-line book databases in bookdealing on the world wide web, and where to learn about the Internet. An appendix gives many sources of further information and help, such as business shops and enterprise agencies.

Book Description Stuart Baldwin, Witham, first edition, 1999, 1999. First impression of 1000 copies. Cloth, 8vo, 25 cm, x, 214 pp, ills. From the blurb: "Over the centuries there have been many books written for booklovers and collectors, but there has never been an in-depth study for beginners or bookdealers giving the practical details of the secondhand book trade, and even if there were, the advent of the internet would have made it obsolete. A Beginner's Guide . fills this gap. Incorporating 50 years of business experience with some 30 years in book dealing, this comprehensive work, provides for the first time the highly-detailed specialist knowledge required for starting in secondhand and antiquarian bookdealing. It is aimed at those who would like to start in business, e.g. converting a book-collecting hobby into a full or part-time operation; those who would like to put their redundancy money or golden handshake to profitable use; and existing bookdealers who would like to expand their businesses, train staff, or learn more about the enormous effect the internet is having on secondhand and antiquarian bookdealing, and how to use and cash in on it. Topics in Part I include the various options available (including chapters on book-fairs and catalogue bookselling), where to obtain stock, pricing and pricing policy, how to publicise yourself and your business, trade organisations, publications and reference works, and simple repairs. Part II provides detailed guidance on business planning for both starting and running a small business with the emphasis on cashflow and profit, and how to present a case for finance to a bank manager. Part III gives an introduction to the internet, covering e-mails, designing, using and publicising your own website, and the importance of online book databases in bookdealing on the world wide web. An appendix gives many sources of further information and help. A touch of humour is injected in the form of tailpieces at the end of most chapters." Very Good in chipped dustwrapper.
