I am not sure if the item I have is considered an Antique.

Customer Question

I am not sure if the item I have is considered an Antique. It is a book published in Santiago de Chile in 1970 signed by the author Pablo Neruda and the illustrator Mario Toral. The illustrations are magnificent and in and of themselves a work of art beyond the beautiful poems of Neruda. What is the best way to have it appraised?

Hi,

Thank you for the additional information. There is just one image showing some damage to the cover. Does that damage go through the pages as well and did it effect the signature?

No absolutely no interior damage

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

This signed limited edition can retail for $3500 - $4500; yours with the condition issue to the cover would be in the $2000 range.
