About Rare Book Talk and Appraisals with Kenneth Gloss (Virtual)

Join us virtually for a Rare Book Talk with Kenneth Gloss, proprietor of the historic Brattle Book Shop, founded circa 1825, and frequent guest appraiser on the PBS Antiques Roadshow.

Gloss will share some of his favorite rare finds and explain factors that contribute to a book’s value. He has many anecdotes to share as well as tips for starting your own book collection. There will be a question-and-answer session after his talk. Guests are invited to bring books, manuscripts, and ephemerae for their own collections and Gloss will give free verbal appraisals just as he does on the Antiques Road Show. If you prefer, you may also choose to submit photos of your rare books in advance of the program via email at

Please pre-register online for this free zoom program. All registered guests will recieve zoom access information in their confirmation email.
