Ed’s Editions offers inexpensive first-edition books

Nice feature on a used bookstore in Columbia, S.C., which claims an inventory of 37,000 used and collectible books offering many first editions at reasonable prices. Ed’s Editions Turns Page on Classic Rare Reads by Kristyn Winch for The Daily Gamecock reports on this family owned and operated bookstore.

The bookstore, which has been at its present location for 11 years, was a dream for store owner Ed Albritton and his wife. Albritton is president of the Antiquarian Book Dealer Association of South Carolina.

“Most of the books at Ed’s Editions are hardcover and many are first editions. Most books in the store are moderately priced. Albritton said most paperbacks range in price from $5 to $10 and hardcover books range from $10 to $20. Ed’s Editions contains a separate rare book room that was opened in 2009 and holds books ranging in value from $100 to $10,000,” writes Winch.

Albritton told Winch that the “intangible element” of holding a book is a big draw for customers with the rise of e-readers and the availability of books for tablets.

If you’re traveling through Columbia, S.C. be sure and stop by, and let me know how you liked the store. Ed’s Editions also sells through Amazon and other online booksellers.
