I have been a collector of movie pressbooks for over 45 years. Over that time I have managed to collect an amazing amount of pressbooks. I bought only those that were in decent condition and examined all of the pressbooks I purchased before I bought them. There are many differences in pressbooks. Were they stored in humid theater attics or basements? Do they have a musty odor? How yellowed are the pages from being stored improperly. Does the pressbook come with all the supplements and the heralds that the studio included when they were sent to theaters? Are any advertisements cut out which brings the value down dramatically? How has the collector stored them?
All of my pressbooks listed have been stored in air conditioned surroundings, with 2 large HEPA certified air filters near the shelves. All of my pressbooks have been stored in plastic seal able bags to prevent air from discoloring the paper. I have the largest collection of pressbooks on Ebay and have thousands yet to list.
