Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a set of books by Dickens (very good condition) with an imprint of Dickens face on cover - made and printed by Greycaine Book Manufacturing Company Limited in Watford (but can't seem to find publishing date).. was wondering roughly what they would be worth?

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

They have nice b/w sketches in them but what makes me a bit wary is that it says the illustrations were done by Phiz which sounds modern...- books are called Nicholas Nickelby, A Tale of Two Cities and American Notes, Oliver Twist and Great Expectations, Bleak House and Life and Characters of Dickens (that one is by HC Dent) - 5 books in all, all the same covers etc all have Oldham's Press Limited, Long Acre, WC2 in the front and reference to Greycaine in the back...(all hardcover)
