Malaprop's First Edition Book Club

Dear Friends,

First we created Downtown Books & News, our used bookstore and newsstand for saving on your book-dollars. Now Malaprop’s offers a rewarding investment at no extra cost: Malaprop’s First Editions Club.

Our First Editions Club is for readers who want to build their own collectable library. A signed first edition can become a special and valuable book for the owner, and highly desirable to dealers and other collectors.

We will send you a signed first edition, occasionally two, every month. Selections are predominately fiction and chosen on literary content and potential future collectability. Our buyers work with publisher representatives to bring you exciting works by new writers and literary mainstays. When we cannot have the books signed in-house at Malaprop’s, we will arrange to have them signed in New York or elsewhere as convenient to the author and publisher. We do not want our members to miss out on signed firsts if we are not on the official author tour.

There is no cost to join and your credit card is charged only at the time the monthly MFEC selection is shipped to you. All you pay is the publisher’s retail price of the book plus a $10 shipping charge. You are welcome to request in-store pickup to avoid a shipping charge. If you live or work downtown, we’ll deliver your book for free!

Other perks for MFEC members:

  •     First notification on any other signed firsts we order in smaller quantities
  •     VIP seating at author events
  •     Access to advance reading copies of new titles

If you’d like to join or have any questions about the MFEC, please email first@malaprops.com

Sincerely,

Emöke B’Racz

Owner and Founder of Malaprop’s Bookstore/Café
