Home > Our First Editions Club > Nonfiction - FEC

Like our First Editions Club for Fiction, we look for collectible authors and debut books. We also look for stories that are compelling and eye-opening. Unlike the Fiction club, we may not choose a book every single month. Instead, we will likely choose 10-12 books a year.

How It Works

An Author Experience We want to meet the authors of our favorite books, and we want to give you the chance to meet them, too. You deserve a good book and a great literary experience.

The Best Books in Hand We select the most pristine copies of the book for the club, and we want them to be delivered to you in the same pristine condition. We first protect the book's dust jacket with an archival mylar cover to help maintain its value. For those books that are shipped, we wrap the book in butcher paper, and pack it carefully in a box ‐ never in an envelope.

Ship-out or Pick-up For all three of our clubs, the cost is just the list price of the book. Each month's book can be picked up in the store, or we can ship to you monthly. Shipping is $5 shipping plus $1 for each additional book. Once a month we send an email to all of our FEC members giving them first dibs on any notable signed first edition that we have in the store. So even if you live in another city or state, you can still have access to signed first editions.
