My Dad is a big stamp collector and he loves to collect varieties and errors in stamps, as an example the 1918 Inverted Flying Jenny is probably the most collectable error, and he does not own one.

The normal copy is worth a few cents, but the error is about $1million US.

As for books, Stu is correct they normally have no value with printing errors, you may want to look to see if you can replace the copy that you have with a fine copy without error.

This happens when the entire page block gets inserted into the boards the wrong way up at the bindery. I've seen it a few times on various books. It may have been a single block assembled incorrectly or one of a batch. Like I say, usually (almost always) it detracts from the value, because collectors don't generally want a faulty book when there are (almost always) plenty of the same impression that aren't faulty.

I know some stamps have value because they are faulty, but I think even that only applies in a very limited number of cases, and I haven't heard of the same philosophy being applied to books.
