Boston, Ghoughton & Osgood & Co - Is this the publisher of your edition?

Kind regards,

Doris

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.

I see you have a different publisher in your question.

Let me research further.

Thanks. Just confused about the T Rogers Private Library...is that something actually printed as part of the book, or is it a stamp or stick-on label that was added by the purchaser?

We don't have a phone number, so I'm not sure who you are calling? In any case, there are many, many variables of this book (or really most books), so it's simply not possible to give you a price without all this information. No one is giving you a ride, we're just trying to get enough to give you a correct answer. This particular book has been published thousands of times.

With the additional information, I now have located what I believe is your book. The current value would be approximately $50. This is a later edition, the first Riverside editions were published about 6 years earlier.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
