Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Based on comparables, a first edition printing of Pocket Manual of Rules of Order for Deliberative Assemblies otherwise known as Robert's Rules of Order by Henry M. Robert and published by S.C. Griggs would have a high retail sale value of $500 on today's market. If you were to sell this on your own expect $150 - $200.
