I've heard that book dealers often have stacks of authentic but unused book
jackets laying around. If a bookseller matches one of these jackets to the
correct edition of a jacketless book, how should a buyer assess the value of
the newly-jacketed book? If you collect mostly for the jackets, like I do,
this is a exciting find. Are books and jackets that have been together since
publication always more valuable?
