Hello, I am sorry you have had to wait.
Please know a professional will be working on your question.
Also, please know answers here are not instantaneous.
I have two customers who have been waiting since this afternoon ahead of you.
I will take your question when I finish with those two if another professional does not pick it up. In the meantime, I will opt-out so that the other Appraisals specialists will see your question.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
Thank you again for waiting. I will work on your question now.
Unfortunately, I have bad news. Your book "Mother Goose Picture Book", Royt, Kovar, 1932, is now listed retail at $10. See the following image.
Value of old books depends on how rare the book is and of course, age. Your book, while 1930s, must have had many copies printed.
Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.
If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:
The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.
Be sure to specify local pick up only for large items. That way the buyer would be responsible for obtaining his own insurance and transport.
These sites carry antique as well as vintage items.Accept PayPal only.
Etsy.com - small fees - 20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.Artfire.comBonanza.com
Or your nearest CraigsList.com where you can list items for free. Accept cash only.
These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.GoAntiques.comRubylane.comTias.comcyberattic.comtrocadero.com
I am truly sorry. I wish I better news.
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.
