Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Can you help find the value of antique books?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

They are all publishedin then1800's
