Yes, it does help.
Thank you for the additional information.
Please allow me time to research this book.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
My research indicates that your book of copies of papers important to the early history of the USA would have an estimated retail value of $300-350 assuming good condition and depending on sale geographic location.
See the following site for tips on selling old books.
How to sell books:http://www.internetbookselling.com/sell-old-books.html
In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.
Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.
I hope I have helped you.
