Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

I need m more information.

The range for one book/set by Zane Grey varies from $3.00-!8,000.

If it is a set of Zane Grey with the same publisher and date, please let me know that.

If not, then I will need the publisher and date of publication for each book.

Whether a set or not, I need the titles s well as corresponding publisher and date.

Kind regards,

Mke,

You have gone to a lot of trouble. It is going to take a while for me to add up all these values but I should have an answer for you within a couple of hours.

Kind regards,

Doris

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 8 months ago.

One question -

When you mention two publication dates, does that mean you have two copies?

Kind regards,

Doris

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 8 months ago.

When the words "By permission of .......(Harper. Grossett, etc.)...." does it give the actual publisher?

Best,

Doris

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No I don't have two copies of the book. I went by what the inside cover says. I am not sure about the permission part but I could send you a copy of that page if you need it. I could fax it to you or mail to you if you wish. Let me know how you want it .Otherwise I could send you 1 book if that helps. Let me know your address if that helps. Thank you for your time. Mike
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 8 months ago.

Mike,

When it says "by the permission of" with a publishers name, it usually means the book was printed by another company.

Can you take a close-up photo of that part of the page?

Do you have the dust jackets (printed/illustrated paper) for any of these books.

All this can make thousands of dollars difference in value.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the page.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the page and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "attach file" or "add file" link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.

Kind regards,

Doris

Note - you need not do this for all your books.....just one for Harper and one for Gossett.
