How do I find out how much my book is worth?

Return to what I was doing

Determining the value of a book can be a very intricate process. Professional booksellers take many things things into consideration when determining a fair market value of a title. Condition, edition, scarcity, demand, and age are all factors.

If you feel you may have a book which is worth a considerable sum, we highly recommend that you find a seller of rare books in your area who performs professional appraisals. There may be a cost involved, but having a professional bookseller evaluate your book before you attempt to sell will ensure that you ask for a fair price. If you intend to keep the title, appraisals can also assist you in properly insuring your property against future damage or loss.
