Book Value? by [email protected]
I have a number of art books that I would like to attempt to sell. Can anyone tell me the best way to determine the current value? Some are signed first editions and others have tipped in colour plates. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated. Thanks Rob

An Interesting Coincidence by Francis A. Miniter[_2_]
At a book sale today, I picked up two books. One is _The Wandering Jew_ by Eugene Sue, a French author (1804 - 1857), whose acquaintance I had not previously made. The other is Umberto Eco's latest novel, _The Prague Cemetery_ , in which, I have just learned, Eugene Sue is a...

Unusual Edition of Kennedy's Profiles in Courage by Francis A. Miniter[_2_]
What I picked up today is a copy of the Inaugural Edition of this work (1961, of course) by Harper & Row. But, it is not cloth bound. Rather it is beautifully leather bound in brown leather and gold trim. What I don't know is whether this copy was part of a presentation copy (for which I...

The item I have is an original copy (hardbound) of the 1899 "Regulations for the government of The Life-Saving Service of the United States". As far as I have been able to research, this was the last edition of the regulations before the USLSS was absorbed by the new US Coast Guard in 1917 Book...

Naipaul signature by Francis A. Miniter[_2_]
I bought a copy of V. S. Naipaul's The Masque of Africa (2010) at a book sale a week ago. Last night I looked more carefully at it and found that the author had signed it on the title page just above his name. This is the first signature I have of a Nobel Laureate. Francis A. Miniter

A Separate Peace...John Knowles by Weathers123
I recently found a copy dated 1959....from the International Collectors Library. Now, I know that most of ICL's books aren't really worth anything. But, I'm just wondering if "A Separate Peace" might be worth a bit more than some of the others. I know that it is a sought after book...or so I have...
