The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Is there a hard-to-find first-edition that you would love to own? If so, why?

Is there any hard to find first edition that I wouldn’t love to own? I can’t imagine that though I wouldn’t pay for just any book.
I would be willing to pay for first editions from the Victorian era of the US and UK as long as it wasn’t more than we could afford.
If I had to pick just one, I would chose Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen because it was a book that was special to my grandmother, and she gave me her copy (which was not a first edition though it was old)- which made Pride and Prejudice special to me. It was also the first classic I ever read.
