Customer Question
I recently acquired a...

I recently acquired a 1771 copy of rev John Fleetwood's Life of Christ. I have been looking online for a value but so far I am unable to find anything dated this far back.

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 purchased the book at an auction there is no publisher listed just reads printed under the Authority of the king MDCCLXXI

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

The pages are complete, good color, the leather cover has wear from age but its intact

Is there a fold-out map?

Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 9 months ago

thank you for the excellent photo.

I see where it was printed for J Cooke.

See the following image.

It shows a book matching your description (but with a fold-out map) is currently for sale for $194.30.

Just because a book is old does not mean high value.

I truly wish I had better news.

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.
