hi, i just got my mother a louisa may alcott book, and also one by edward dowden. they are pretty old, just wondering how much they are worth. i don’t have any idea how to begin to value them but it’s just a start, at least i will be happy to know their worth thank you.
hello, i have two early 1900s books entitled an autobiographical sketches of the lives of some of the most eminent painters and sculptors of our time. they are inscribed on the front cover, “william james emerson”. it was published in philadelphia in 1900 and i am not really sure of their value. any suggestions?
hi, i have been trying to figure out the value of my grandfathers copy of “the utne reader” and have been unsuccessful. it has the magazine’s name on the front cover and says “the utne reader” but the year is not there and the actual magazine issues was published between 1999-2004. we’re not sure when it was issued. the spine says from publisher tim mcguire and it lists the address as being at scholastic in new york. it is an old and beat up book. the printing is uneven and the “splotches” are really there. the pages stick together and it is in very good condition, the only issues are a couple of typos and a few missing pages. most of it is legible but there are some missing pages. i also have a box of books from my grandmother, she was an avid reader. “the utne reader” was probably from the early 90’s but most of these are from the 80’s and early 90’s, there is 3 books in the box and it is a lot of fun finding out what they are about. one of them is called “the art of invisibility” and it is about polarity by dr. michio kaku, he is not a christian, but he did teach a class on christianity at georgetown. the other two books in the box are called “how the jews saved modern science”, “how to be a nazi in america” and “the devil’s delusion” and they were all written by a guy named janin who was a jehovah witness in new york city. there is also a yiddish “judges for jehovah” and an “advanced bible course for children” by herman e. spiegler which also is interesting. (maybe too much detail?) there is also a book called “the enlightened science of islam” and a book called “new awareness of the bible” which i am not familiar with. (all these books are in alphabetical order in the box, no dates or dates of issue. any value would be appreciated as the books would make great christmas presents. thank you 3d9ccd7d82
