Rolland Comstock Collection
Rolland Comstock was a noted first edition collector who appeared in Basbanes' Patience and Fortitude about book collectors. Comstock is believed to have collected more than 50,000 first editions.
Comstock took meticulious care of his books and the vast majority are in Fine condition and protected in Mylar.
The author signatures on these books are guaranteed to be authentic. We have many letters written by the authors to Comstock indicating they did in fact sign the books. Comstock was an obsessive collector who travelled around the world meeting authors in person.
Comstock was murdered in his mansion in 2007. You can find more information on Rolland Comstock simply by googling him. His murder remains unsolved although his ex-wife and adopted son remain persons of interest to the police.
