My favorite resource to use to "guesstimate" values of old or out-of-print
books is  Go to the used & out of print section.  It is a
website that searches through over 40 bookstores, 20,000 dealers!  One stop
shopping!  Since it is a site for book dealers to sell books, it will only
include books that are currently for sale, but since it covers so many
dealers, it covers millions of books.  I have searched it for countless
books, and nearly always find them there.  It will at least give you the
prices the dealers are asking for their books.

Hope this helps,

Subject: valuing antique books


I've had a teacher ask for some resources to help her figure out how = much
two antique books are worth.  She has already tried, = and a few others she was able to find through Google but = she's
not having any luck finding anything about her particular books.  = In one
case, the book doesn't have an ISBN or even any formal = publication
information anywhere in the book, just an inscription dating = the book from
1875.  Any suggestions I can pass on for ways to determine = the value of
her books?

Thanks so much!
