    The owner of National Book Auctions, David Hall, has a long history as a book dealer. He got his start in book auctions as a buyer -- but after a series of too good to be true auction prices, realized that many rare and significant books were being sold for far less than their true value. This inspired him to create National Book Auctions, giving important books and collectable paper items a more appreciated and valuable sales forum.
