i have several antique books left to me by my uncle and would like to know more
JA: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have the tarzan anthology series some with full color jackets circa from 1912 to 1846 Rudyard kipling many books including the jungle book jules vern time machine.twenty thousand leagues under the sea circa first edition 1932. Bambi copyright 1929,1931Treasure island with illustrations copyright 1911.

Hi,

I generally do not handle that many valuation in one question thread. I can provide an assessment for one or two books or sets here if you like. My first suggestion for your collection of books is to make a list of each book or set with just the title, author, year and publisher name; this information is what any appraiser or auction house will initially request. I would be happy to assess all of them for you through new question postings.

Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

Sincerely,

Nora
