Customer Question
I found a George...

I found a George Wharton James book on Rose Hardwick Thorpe, copywrited 1916. It is signed Rose Hardwick Thorpe on the title page, and on page 2 or 3 where there are pictures of her at 16 and 19, they got the ages wrong under the photo, so she wrote the correct age near the photo. She also made a notation on page 185.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No, and I can send photos.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos.

To send photos you may use the "ADD (or ATTACH) FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

Kind regards,
Doris

Unfortunately, I do not have good news.

Your book, Rose Hardwick Thorpe of "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight", by George Wharton James and published in 1916 by The Radiant Life Press has an estimated retail value of $44.

I found one similarly signed currently for sale retail for $44.

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.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

I hope I have helped you.
