I got the pictures of the Bible.
On your bible, most religious texts printed after 1800 don't carry extremely high values because of new printing techniques they were able to almost "mass produce" them, but even the oldest of the "new" technique books do still have some value..Milford wasn't a high end publisher. They tended to publish in mass volumes so they could sell their bibles at affordable prices..
The Oxford University Press printed version from around 1915 / 1920. Based on my records of sales, auctions and current listings with the antique and higher-end booksellers, a copy from around 1915 to 1920 should have a current secondary market value in the range of $15 to $30 for fair to good condition (scuffs, rubbings, dented corners, tears, etc) and $40 to $60 for very good to excellent condition.
These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop, Vintage Book Store or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling,you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. ).If I can be of any further help, please feel free contacting me, if there is a problem with my answer please feel free contacting me before leaving a negative feedback, any problem can be resolved.
