Thanks for this information.

This book was very popular and that's not good for collectors. It currently retails for $1 - $5. Similarly, Hoover was generous with his signature - I even have one on a photo.

If your book is in great condition, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $200. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount, or $80, depending on location and actual condition.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Brad.

If you have any further questions or problems concerning your answer, please let me know.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.

I need your positive rating! Could you very kindly rate my services (with the stars or "accept" button) as this is how I get paid by JustAnswer, at no extra cost to you. We can still continue to communicate here on this thread after you do.

Thank you so much!
