I have some old books do you offer any advice on that?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have some American cyclopaedia 1873

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

A popular dictionary of general knowledge

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-up offers.
Although I am USPAP-trained, the assessments given here do not meet USPAP requirements.

I can help you with your books but I can only take the two you mention in this one single question.

Tell me which volumes you have of the American Cyclopedia, 1873. Who is the publisher?

Please give me the exact title of your " popular dictionary of general knowledge." What is the date of this dictionary as well as the publisher.

Kind regards,

Doris

Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 11 months ago

The full set of volumes printed in 1873 consists of 16 books.

Do you have all 16?

In your original question, you stated these were printed in 1873.

In your most recent response, you said 1874.

Which is it?
