Hello,thank you this book has a value of 35.00. To sell it you would see a realized price of 20-25.00. Life of David Crockett, hardbound, published in 1869 (you said it was bought in 1880 and the next edition did not come out until 1890) Thank you for coming to just answer. If I may be of further help please let me know.
