As Issued is a publishing term that refers to a book that is being offered for sale in its original, unaltered state. This means that the book has not been revised or corrected in any way, and that all of its original content is intact. 

The term is important for book collectors, as the value of a book can be significantly affected by its as issued condition. For example, a first edition of a book that is in as issued condition is worth more than a first edition of the same book that has been rebound or had its pages trimmed. They are generally more valuable than books that have been revised or corrected, because they are considered to be more rare and collectible. 

The term can also be used to describe other collectible items, such as coins or stamps, that are in the same condition as when they were originally issued.

One way to collect these books is to purchase them directly from the publisher. This is often the most expensive way to collect As Issued books, but it is also the most guaranteed way to get a genuine As Issued book. Publishers will sometimes offer As Issued books for sale on their websites, or through catalogs and mail-order catalogs.

Another way to collect them is to purchase them from used bookstores or online used booksellers. This can be a cheaper way to collect As Issued books, but it is also more risky, because you can never be completely sure that the book you are buying is truly an As Issued book. When buying from a used bookstore or online bookseller, be sure to ask lots of questions about the book’s history and condition, and inspect the book carefully before making your purchase.

These books can also be found at garage sales, estate sales, and flea markets. This can be a great way to find As Issued books at a low price, but it can also be a bit of a gamble, because you never know what you might find. It’s always a good idea to inspect any As Issued books you find at these types of sales carefully before buying, to make sure that they are in good condition and that all of their pages are intact.

No matter where you purchase As Issued books, be sure to do your research beforehand to know what to look for. They can be a great addition to any book collection, but they can also be quite expensive, so it’s important to be sure that you are getting what you pay for.

Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
