I have some other collectibles as original

Customer Question
For Nora: I have some...
For Nora: I have some other collectibles as original Audubon's and several documents with famous signatures around the founding of our country. Do you have expertise in these areas? Let us start with framed octavo's of all seven of the cats in the Quadruped
collection --- Value?? If more details I need to check them at home. Also, in the Audubon category, I have an intact pamphlet (as they were originally published ) in octavo format of the Great Blue Heron.

Thank you -- I think I got mixed up in the mechanics. Since this is a pamphlet with several pages from 173 to 200 to be exact and includes 5 lithos of 4 different birds -- I can photograph the front and back cover of the pamphlet and the plates -- I am under the impression that the intact original pamphlet has considerable value based on that presentation as it was the original format that Audubon published in as a subscription -- then others put them into books as complete works. Will that be OK or do you need every page photographed??
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Sorry I just now reviewed the email string and realized I was talking about a set of 7 quadrupeds/cats that I also have -- one at a time I understand -- so let us do the Birds of North America pamphlet first
