Hello, Your book can carry a sales estimate as high as $1000 - $2000 on today's market. If you are interested in selling your books, I suggest that the best route for these would be through auction. Here are some suggestions of companies to contact: Bauman's Rare Books in Manhattan - PBA Rare Book Auctions in San Francisco: Swann’s Auction Galleries: Bloomsbury London: Heritage Auctions: Australian Book Auctions: Dominic Winter Auctions: Bonham’s Book and Manuscripts Dept: Contact all of them, if possible for you, regardless of the company location. This will also help you get a consensus opinion on the value and estimates. Approach each one as if you are interested in selling through them. Auction houses take a percentage of the final sale price, so it is in their best interest to sell it for a premium bid. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.
