Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.When dealing with antiquarian or collectible books, condition plays a major role in the resale value. Collectors are looking for top quality issues with the least amount of damage. Soiling, staining, binding damage, cover damage, or torn pages would result in a drop in value.With that being said, in fair condition your 1913 copy of The Handbook of Chemistry and Physics published in Cleveland, OH by the Chemical Rubber Company would have a resale value of 30-40USD. You could use a local used book store to try to consign the book, but you may want to take a look first at and then to try to reach more potential buyers for your antiquarian book. I hope this information was helpful to you today.Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.Thank You,Frank
