No thanks, I'd rather stick to an online answer (here), or--as I've said, an e-mail response. (You've already 'gotten me' for $5, but NOT for an additional $34!!) I'm a cancer survivor...and as such, it bankrupted me---I'm living on a partial Soc. Sec. check, and every cent counts!! If this volume is worth something substantial, I wish to put it up for auction.)

Understood, no worries on the phone offer, it is by choice. ~Nora

Hello,

Your 1895 Harper & Brothers published edition of Thomas Hardy's title, Far From the Madding Crowd retails for $75 on today's market.

Though it may sound cliche, the best platform for you to sell these is on Ebay. It is where the most potential buyers would first go to search for such items. You can also try listing on Craigslist, through a for sale forum group on Facebook or a local consignment shop. I do not recommend selling direct to a dealer, as a dealer will offer 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value.

Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.

Thank you; though obviously, I was hoping for significantly higher valuation!

In the meantime, if you could please take a moment to leave a rating for my services here by clicking the stars, I would really appreciate it.

This question thread will not close after a rating is left.

Thank you!
