Book has over 630 pages.

The book entitled The Official and Pictorial Record of the War with Spain and Philippines including the life, messages and papers of President McKinley. 1902, has a estimated retail value of $150.

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%-50% more than retail values.
