Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am a Personal Property Appraiser specializing in Fine Art & Antiques and I am here to help! In your description of your item, I do not see an actual question. So just to make sure we are on the same page, I would like to start by asking, what would you like to know? Are you just seeking a secondary market value?
I would like any information on this book and a value as I have been offered this book.
Most of the information i could provide should be on the first few pages as to the publication information. Using my resources to look into your inquiry, I was able to find comparable sales that give your book a current secondary market value of $50 - $80 USD at auction or in a private sale. I hope this answers your question!
i need to know more about the book
What would you like to know?
I am from Britain so would you convert the value into stirling please. On the front inside cover of the book is printed first edition published AD 1726, yet it gives the year of the authors death as 1745. if that is the case was the book first published after his death?
This was published before the authors death. And the conversion for the valuation is £32 - £52
Is it a genuine book then seeing as how it contains his year of death of 1745 yet says published 1726 I dont understand this. How could they know when he was going to die? I'm just being careful
Im sorry i missed that. Are there any other publication years listed?
No but by Looking through it I have found a small print of Turnbull and Spears Edinburgh. Also edited by Israel Gollancz M.A.. The title page has tissue over it And red ink. date in red in MDCCCXCVI: PUBLISHED BY J M DENT AND CO ALDINE HOUSE LONDON E C. I feel that its not right somehow thats why I'm asking the experts as I don't want to pay more than its worth
Because it is unsure as to the year of publication of this book, i heave researched a value range for all the publication years. It appears that the lowest they sell for is $30 and the highest being around $80 regardless of its year. I hope this will help you!
I have checked the publisher JM Dent and have found he published between 1890 and 1950s although the book does feel older and looks really old but I suppose that can be done to a book artificially. I am going to play safe and refuse the offer to purchase the book. Thankyou for your help
