Id like to know the value of a book I inherited from my grandmother

Customer Question

I'd like to know the value of a book I inherited from my grandmother THE STORY OF THE WILD WEST AND CAMPFIRE CHATS by Buffalo Bill (Wm. F. Cody) published by Historical Publishing Co., St. Louis, MO . , Copyright 1888 by H. S. Smith. At the end of the Preface there is a possible signature: Sincerely XXXXXXXXXX Buffalo Bill. but it may be stamped. I saw one with the same cover in the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, WY but when I wrote to them and asked about this book, they wrote back that they did not know of any editions published in St. Louis.  I also have several other old books I'd like to ask about in the next few days.  Thanks.

TaxTom :

Hello, Condition of the book makes a great difference in value, I would estimate a value of $50.00 to $150.00 with the high end been in excellent condition. I did find this edition on the Library of Congress website but could not be sure if it a First edition as several publishers printed this book in 1888. Thanks Tom

Customer:

I'd like to know the value of another book: SILAS MARNER, Macmillan Pocket classic, by George Eliot and edited with notes and an introduction by Edward L Gulick, A.M. (Harvard)master of English in the Lawrencdvile school, Lawrenceville School. Printed probably 1917..

Customer:

Also a book: MY COUNTRY' by Grace A Tutkington. Looks like a first editioneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

TaxTom :

Silas Marner common book $5-10, My Country is an early textbook and depending on age again $5 to $10. Both of these books are widely available and neither are special editions. Thanks Tom

Hello, That is true but experts get paid by the questions they answer, so even though you pay one fee we get paid by each answer accepted. I have no problem giving values of 3 or 4 books per question Thanks Tom
