I have a leather bound book of poetry by Greenleaf Whittier,

Customer Question
I have a leather...

I have a leather bound book of poetry by ***** *****leaf Whittier, copyright 1858. How much i it worth?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It was given to me in the early, mid 1970's by a man, approximately 60-80 years old then.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

He claimed t few burned places on the leather were from his fireplace when he read it in Vienna.
