Does anyone know how to find out the value of old books?
I just came back from a church sale with a 1955 edition of The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare.
You can visit a site called Addall.com to get a consensus for what the book is going for online.
There are a number of ways and none of them are fool proof. Even old books are not in short supply. Thus, the value is not as great as people think. I recommend checking second had book stores--not the thrift stores but real second hand stores.
Old paperbacks are virtually worthless, unless you have the author's autograph and have it dated. Old books, printed the old fashion way with handstiched bindings, etc may have some value.
My wife was a school librarian and had books in the library that were 40 years old. We did some checking and not only were they not worth anything, nobody wanted them.
Thank you for your input Larry Wall. Maybe the internet has stopped the value of books?
Thank you for the selection as best answer and I think the internet has lowered the value of books. My wife reads real books and is a constant reader. I like short stories over novels and the Internet is a good place for those.
You are welcome Larry. I save books but lately I only read the internet. Sad but true.
