About the Appraiser:
Greg Jung joined PBA in 2008 with more than two decades of experience in the rare book business that included 5 years managing of one of America’s oldest and largest rare and secondhand book stores in the book-rich Philadelphia suburbs. Greg has also operated shops of his own in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco. As the son of a bibliophile and auctioneer he has been surrounded by collectible books and auctions his entire life. In recent years he has taken the podium himself as the newest of our auctioneers.
While experienced with all areas of book collecting, from incunabula to modern first editions, Greg has particular interest in finely printed and illustrated books of the 19th and 20th centuries, Americana, and early printed books.
