If another professional enters our exchanges, feel free to tell them that you are working with me if you wish.
Please see the following image.
It shows a book similar to yours - King James - 1941 Columbia Educational Books - with a retail asking price of $24.
We can assume then that the retail asking price of yours is also $24.
I wish the value were higher.
I had an expert on Bibles look at my collection one time. He told me that there were so many of each version of the Bible printed that they do not sell very high.
A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.

Here it is.
Let me look at ones on eBay.
I will look to see if they actually sold.
I could not find any over $40 in the best resource I know of for antiquarian books.
Is yours illustrated?
See the following images. All are jpeg format which all computers take.
The first one is a link to the one that selling retail for $24.
The second one is one that sold on eBay for the most that I saw - $135. However it was in excellent condition which yours is definitely not with a major flaw in the broken spine.
Book dealers tell me that condition is easily 40-50% of value when comparing old books.
The third one sold for about $15-16 in good condition.
You cannot compare old Bibles unless they are the same date and publisher.
My 4 examples here are.
If you are working from a phone, you may not see my images.
see the images following.
Were you able to open the three images?
