.

Can you tell me a bit more about your edition? Is the publisher listed? What is the copyright date on your copy?

That is the exact book I'm asking about.
Antique Expert: Diana F., Antiques Appraiser replied 5 months ago

Great. I thought it might be, but I just wanted to be sure.

.

That's a fantastic edition. It's considered a folio edition and features about 26 gorgeous illustrations by Maxfield Parrish. The first edition was published by Scribner's Sons in 1925. It was bound in cloth and came in a matching pictorial box.

.

With the box, it's can be worth just about $5000. Without the box, it's worth about $3000 to $3500.

.

If you do decide to sell it, I'd contact vintage book shops in your area. You might also check with local antique stores. There are a number of collectors that deal in books. You might try finding an antique bookseller in your area: https://www.abaa.org/booksellers

.

To be completely honest, you'll definitely get a higher value by selling it yourself.
.
If you want to try selling your book yourself, I highly recommend checking out Etsy, Barnes and Nobles Marketplace and Amazon's Marketplace. They are great sources for selling and they do handle worldwide sales.

You can also check into:Albris or Biblio. Albris actually has one of the best price rates out there, but Biblio tends to get more customer traffic.

.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

.

I hope this has been helpful to you. I do my best to offer you the most current values and information using the latest guides and recorded sales.
.

Please keep in mind I am only credited for my answer if you rate me positively. If you feel the need to use a lower rating which adds a negative mark to my profile or if you have any further questions about your item please feel free to reply to me and tell me what else I can do for you..

.

If you're on a mobile device, please make sure to scroll to the top and click on the box that says finish rating! A box with stars in it should open and you can rate me there.

.

If you have any trouble doing that, please let me know.

.

If you would like to use me on any further questions. Requesting me expires in just a short time. If you put my name (DianaF) in the question, that will make sure it gets to me.
.
I look forward to working with you again.
.
I hope you have a great evening.
