"New England homes are treasure-troves for old and rare books that have increased in value over the years," said Kenneth Gloss, owner of Brattle Book Shop in Boston.
Gloss will be speaking at the Canton Public Library at 7 pm on Tuesday, June 5.
The event is free and open to the public.
Gloss will bring to the lecture several examples of interesting books, magazines and ephemera from the store's private collection, such as a 1912 World Series scorecard and examples of old LIFE Magazines. He also has a sales brochure for the Titanic.
Following the lecture and question-and-answer session Gloss will give free verbal appraisals of those books that people bring with them or will do so at anytime at his 9 West Street emporium in Boston.
