    Fish Re: Old books 1800's-early 1900's

    To Whom With the Experience of Old Books!

    I have a set of 4 books titled: The School Library Encyclopedia
    Copyrighted 1897 Bellows Brothers Publisher in Chicago
    "Embracing History, Geography, Discovery, Invention, Biography, Arts, Sciences and Literature. Prepared especially for the use in the public schools of America with Guideposts - A reading Index" Fully illustrated with Lithographs, engravings and historical, political and physical maps.

    Condition a bit worn on the hardbound covers, with some lithograph colored pages covered in onion skin type paper.

    I'm curious as to the history and are these rare? What would the price check be?

    Thanks in advance for replies.

    I have copies of Graded Literature Readers first (1899), second(1899) and third (1900) text books by Charles E. Merrill Company; Graded Work in Arithmetic (1897) by S. W. Baird; and Mastery of Words (1920) by Sarah Louise Arnold. I was wondering what these text books are worth?

    The book He Leadeth Me was given to me a long time ago by my great aunt. I am unsure of publish date, but looks like early 1900s.
    The publisher was Charles E. Graham & Co. Newark , NJ & New York.
    On the back cover is printed "0923 Golden Hymn Series"
    Includes the song “He Leadeth Me” by J. H. Gilmore as well as bible verses; Psalm 23:3, John 10:3, Psalms 23:2, and Isaiah 48:17.
    There are beautiful illustrations throughout the book. Cover has wear and tear, but pages are in pretty good shape.
    I snapped photos and put into a slideshow. ‪He Leadeth Me Vintage Book‬‏ - YouTube
    If you have any more information about this book, please let me know!

    I have a collection of 10 hardback books from the National reporter system ( law books) from various regions across the USA all in great shape dated from 1878-1912 any idea of the worth or where to get them appraised?

    Thank you

    I have a leather bound Shakespeare anthology produced by D. Appleton and Company, NY, 1867 and revised by Mary Cowden Clarke. It has slight darkening of the page edges, but the pictures are sharp and not smudged at all. The spines are rubbed, but intact, and none of the pages are missing or loose. Gilt edges, marbled end papers, and Shakespeare is in gold on the front. It is not "Shakespeare" though; it says "Shakspeare". The rest of the book spells the name correctly with the first e following the k, but there is a very conspicuous misprint on the cover. Also, the book was dedicated to a Miss Allie Wood for winning an English Composition exhibition in 1869- the occasion has been noted by hand on the first (blank) page of the book.

    Any thoughts as to what this book may be worth? I've heard that a book dedicated to someone is worth less, but this I think just makes it more historical. I was also thinking that the misprint may make the book more valuable. Of course, I'm only guessing- I have no real clue about its rarity or commonness.

    I have an old German Sunday School book. It is titled Um des Glaubens willen. There are four short stories by Minna Rudiger and one by a C. Winter???? titled Wilhelm's goldene Schuhe. I can find books by Minna Rudiger but nothing on this C. Winter nor the story itself. Unsure of publication year, though the publisher is Ernst Kaufmann. There is a stamp inside from Ev. -Luth. St. Johannes dated Dec 25 1902 but my research has led me to believe that it was just a Christmas gift in that year. Minna Rudiger published her first Um des Glaubens willen. Vier erzahlungen aus de Reformationszeit in 1898 and a second publication in 1909. I am trying to find a value on this. I know that Minna's books run from $25 - $40 depending on publication year.

    I am also curious about some very old books I have. They are a 4 volume set of the works of Alexander Pope, published in 1805, 1805, 1806 and 1807. They are small books- leather bindings, gilt edge paper. The leather is very dried out (we live in a very dry climate) but they have been well protected. Any ideas?

    Hello. I have a book that I got from a friend last year. I have to say, its a very good read, and I suggest reading it before your life is over.

    The book I have is called "The Persecution of Stephen Strong" by Reverend C. E. Babcock, Ph.D. It was copyrighted in 1908, and I believe this is the first version of the book. It has a red cover with gold lettering. It is in mid-condition, a few of the front blank white pages being half-way ripped from the spine, but still firmly attached. The book feels fragile, but I've read it cover to cover multiple times and it hasn't degraded in condition. I was wondering, how much would a book like this sell for nowadays? I'm not thinking of selling it unless I absolutely have to. I only want to know the price so I know if its a keeper, or something that I can give to my friends to read and pass on to someone else.

    Hey guys. I just bought an old book today and I want to find out when it was published. I'm not looking for a resale price, just a little bit about the history of this thing.
    It's called The Lady of the Decoration, by Fannie Caldwell Macaulay writing as Frances Little, although the book only mentions her as "The Author of the Lady of the Decoration." Publishers Hodder & Stoughton in London, E.C.4. Printed in Great Britain by Hazell, Watson & Viney Ltd. There is no publication date. The latest book mentioned in "Books by the Author of "The Lady of the Decoration" is the 1915 "The House of the Misty Star" but oddly does not include the 1912 "The Lady and Sada San". Her books from 1917, 1922, and 1931 are not listed.
    Gilded top edge. Brown suede softcover stamped with branches and the title in an Oriental style. Standard paperback size. If anything was ever written on the spine it's rubbed away.
    I've looked on several websites but none of the editions I've found match this description! If someone can help me find more information on when this particular volume was published it would be really helpful.

    I cannot tell if my " THE CHILDREN OF DICKENS" by SAMUEL McCHORD CROTHERS is first edition or not. It says copyright 1925, and the cover has no red lining but just dark, the pages are uneven as if it were made my hand and it is illustrated

    Hi missmitch!!

    I am in search for any original books on personal development, psychology and business from the 1800's and 1900's!! Specifically,

    "What Life Should Mean to You" by Alfred Adler

    Do you have any books in these areas or the book I'm looking for specifically?

    Hello hold on to that Avalon I think it is really very rare - as all reproduced copies are based on a Cornell University scan from about 2010 which has about 100 blank pages
