Was the date before the release date
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Are u able to review the picture of the book I sent
Appraiser: Glenda B., Antiques and Collectibles Appraiser replied 7 months ago

I happen to me a member of the Weston A Price foundation, have been a member for many years.

Yes, I can see the picture of the book.

.

I cannot answer those questions because there is no way to know how many books are out there, it is possible that many members of the Weston A Price Foundation have this book, but I would not know this. No one would.

.

The book is gifted to the person's name that is on the book, I do not know who that person is. I assume the way it reads it may have been someone who helped him with the book.

.

The book was released : Paul B. Hoeber, Inc Medical Book Department of Harper & Brothers
New York London Copyright, 1939, by Paul B. Hoeber, Inc.

.

That is the only first release date listed for this book. The Book on today's market is valued at around 750.00-850.00.

You might contact the Weston A Price Foundation they might be interested in this copy you have.

.

the book without a signature is $850, so the signed copy of this book is 10x that or is the $850.00 the estimated value.
Now as far as the number of first edition is few if any, as the library of Congress doesn't seem to have a hard back copy of the 1st, they have 4th and that's all they seem to have. As I haven't been to this library to confirm and I'm going off there web site information. I'm making a educated guess that if there is another copy, it's not available on any searches I've been able to do.
As a member of the foundation maybe you can ask the other members or the bird of directors if another copy is in there possession.
To coup out with an IDK answer is not acceptable.
You didn't answer any questions, copyright '39 is printed on the book, I wanted the actual calendar date. Or is that too difficult for a member of the foundation in with the author of this book is named after? These factors are relevant to the rarity and could make this book the first if the first edition that was gifted to a close associate so finding out who Mr. J.D Anthony is to Weston.
Maybe if I had the resources to do the things that I have already paid for I wouldn't be so demanding, just a few questions, it's not rocket science.......Now, the clipping about the author? Keep or not?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Not good enough for me, no questions asked have been answered and 3 different prices have been given to me and the "price" range from $10-$850.... So that's not consistent and I'm not satisfied with the service.
