    Imagine that neither cost nor accessibility were to be an issue; which piece of first edition literature would be a must have for you?

    I'd go for the bible.  I think that would be a winner.  A copy of the Iliad would be a nice addition to my collection as well.  smile

    The Great Gatsby. Hands down one of my favorite books.

      No way to pin to one. I'm fortunate to have been able to get a few over the years. Stupidist thing I ever did was GIVE my mother Michener's 1st ed FIRST BOOK-- Tales from the South Pacific. None of the "classics"-- guess Carver's Dragons in the Stars

    Pride and Prejudice.  I know it's cliche, but it really is my favourite book of all time.

    What a question.  For me, it would be either Lewis Carol's "Through the Looking Glass" or "The Prince" by Machiavelli.

    Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes; one of the greatest books ever written and one of the most valuable. It was writtten in the waning days of the Spanish Empire when it briefly led the world in literature and progress.

    Without taking value into consideration, I would have to go for J.M.Barrie's "Peter Pan & Wendy", complete with illustrations by Mabel Lucie Attwell.
