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
email@example.com. We will, of course, credit you with
helping us to help others.
Collectors of other factual reference books will also be interested in
10 of Everything" collectors' website.
