Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Unfortunately, 19th and 20th century books are only rarely of high value. This was a period of great mass production, and books were easily protected and saved. Sheer volume of availability has kept values low.Love Letters of a Coquette, Warren A. Hawley, Henry Altemus 1902, has a current value of approximately $60 - $70.
