I have 3 books (three, four and five of a series) entitled "My Book House" Through Fairy Halls (book 3), The Treasure Chest (4), The Tower Window (5). All edited by Olive Beaupre Miller. All "Chicago, The Bookhouse for Children Publishers" book three and four are copyright 1920, book four 1922. Are they worth anything?
Good evening, The "My Book House" series are fairly common books. There were 12 volumes in the set and the pictoral covers have always been a favorite of mine. In very good condition, they have a retail value of $15-20 each. In near fine/fine condition they can retail for $50-60. Visit www.ioba.org/desc for book condition grading term descriptions. (From personal experience, these are particularly difficult books to sell unless they are in perfect condition. Children's book collectors can easily find copies in good condition - they are looking for "as new" condition.)Please let me know if you have any further questions.

They are in good to pretty fine condition. I'd like to email you pictures (i'm not able to from this format) to further get information. I would be interested in selling them.
You can email them XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX with ChrysalisTM in the subject line.
I just received your pictures. They show the spine cracked on one of the books. There is also some scratching and wear to the covers. I would grade these as "very good". (If the spine has only cracked and there are no pages missing or loose.) I think your best bet for selling would be eBay or consigning at a local antique shop. A rare book dealer would not be interested due to the condition.
