I have a first edition...
I have a first edition print of Myles Munroe's book "In Charge". Although someone has used faint highlighter on very few of the sentences in the first part of the book, otherwise the book is in great shape. Inside the front cover it is signed to "Todd" by the author with the title of a chapter of scripture below that. What is the book worth?

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.
Thoughtful responses take time. My responses are not instantaneous.

What is the name of the publisher?

What is the date of publication?

Kind regards,

Doris

It looks like the chapter beneath the autograph is Phil 1:6.?

Thank you for that information.

The estimated retail value of your book signed by the author is $140-165.

How to sell books:
http://www.internetbookselling.com/sell-old-books.html

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.
