This guide describes everything you need to know about collecting recently published literature. Robert Wilson indicates how to identify known and emerging authors worth collecting; how to find those first editions, with a list of the various labeling styles of well-known commercial and small presses; how to spot a fake; and how to sell your collection to an institution. The appendices alone are a valuable resource for collectors, with lists covering such information as book auction firms, clubs for book collectors, and Wilson's picks for the 50 most important American books since World War II.
From Publishers Weekly
Wilson's guide combines discussions of the basics of book collecting with helpful appendices.

Perhaps there are better out there, I left feeling that much more research was necessary and would have liked it to be a bit more complete.
