There is a genuine problem . Book lovers are financially not well off , certainly not to the extent of going through an auction . But I have a suggestion . These books are very old and they are now in the public domain . The owners can print and sell copies in the market at an affordable price . Both the seller and the buyer stand to gain . I think the auction of the original later on , would fetch in a steep sum far beyond expectations .

Select View on Mysore, Holmes is worth buying. Any idea of its cost? Hope it is affordable!

I have developed a habit of collecting old and prized rare books now. But in Crawford Market , if you go, one comes across some extreme rarest but still pricey around 50 - 70K bucks. Too costly. But if you know the shop owner, they allow you to take copies, even that is costly by every standard.

For true information,we must study author and his work also.
