  1. Robert Says:

    Do you know what the value of this book would be?

  2. admin Says:

    Twenty to One Hundred and Fifty dollars or so, depending on condition and the exact edition. First editions in good condition would be at the high end. Of course, demand for the book is not that high so it would be hard to sell. There are quite a few early editions available for sale at the lower end of that price range.

    I have a first edition, green cloth with title worn, some foxing binding a little loose but papes intact. Can you tell me how much this is worth?
    thanks
    Jane

  4. admin Says:

    If you could find a buyer likely seventy to one hundred fifty dollars, in the best circumstances. It is not an in-demand title though, so buyers will be few and far between. If you listed it on eBay for instance it might only fetch 20 dollars or so, if anyone even wanted it.

    If I were selling it in my store I would likely price it at $50 to $100 depending on condition. More if it were in incredibly good shape.

    Thank you for putting the Kellogg ,Robert H, Life and Death in Rebel Prisons images on your site. I have the first edition but would rather look at the illustrations online to get a close up instead of handling the book.

    Regards,
