Peabody Historical Society & Museum Virtual Presentation by Ken Gloss on the Value of Old and Rare Books, Wednesday, April 7, 6:00 PM

Kenneth Gloss, proprietor of the internationally known Brattle Book Shop in Boston’s Downtown Crossing section, will give a virtual presentation via Zoom on Wednesday, April 7, 6:00 pm, for the Peabody Historical Society & Museum. Ken will discuss the value of old and rare books.

Ken, who is also a frequent guest appraiser on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow, will talk in part about the history of his historic bookshop (www.brattlebookshop.com), which goes back to circa 1825. He is a second-generation owner.

Ken will talk about and show some of his favorite finds and describe some of the joys of the “hunt,” as well as explain what makes a book go up in value. He has many fascinating anecdotes to share as well as guidelines for what to look for when starting a collection. There is also a Q&A session before the conclusion of his talk. Following the talk and question-and-answer session, Ken will give free verbal appraisals of books participants have on hand or will do so at his shop in Boston at a later scheduled date.

This session is free to Members of the PHS, and $10.00 to non-members. To register, please email kelly.daniell@peabodyhistorical.org.
