Customer Question
I have several...

I have several old books most of which are in good condition that have copyright dates of 1920's to 1940's. Are they of any value and how do I find out what value and who would be interested in them?

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I have a series of books, I believe 5, "My Bookhouse Through Fairy Halls" by Olive Beaupre Miller to start.

Thanks for the question. I'd be happy to look up some (up to five) of your books. Please provide the author, title, publisher, year of publication, date of publication.

Miller's Bookhouse series was originally published in a set of six in 1928 and the set can sell for $100 to $125 typically, with individual volumes selling for $15 to $20 generally, see: https://www.biblio.com/book/my-bookhouse-volumes-i-xi-vol/d/1080753898
