About This Site

Welcome to our Guinness Record Book Collecting website. We started the site primarily as a way to keep track of the different Guinness Book of Records and Guinness World Records editions that we have collected from the first edition in 1955. The information on this site should prove useful to other collectors who need information about rarer copies of the book, or need more than just a publication year and author to identify particular editions. If you spot any mistakes, or have any additional information that we can add to the site, please feel free to get in touch via info@book-of-records.info. We will, of course, credit you with helping us to help others.
