  • Book Value ?

    I have in my collection a book Titled (HISTORY OF THE STUDERBAKER CORPORATION)

    By Albert Russel Erskine 1852- 1923 President The Studebaker Corporation

    This book is in good condition for being 89-90 years old, does anyone know what the value would be as I'm looking to sell.

    Hello

    There are two original books on Ebay at the moment, both at least $100. Obviously it seems that they are quite rare.

      That's almost more of a question for a collector books forum than a collector car forum. There are a lot of variables that go into a book's value. Condition, number of copies and reprints available, etc. The most important variable is the "what are people willing to pay?" factor. Someone can appraise a book at a million dollars, but if the highest price anyone is willing to pay is $50, it's still effectively a $50 book.

      Your best bet might be to put it on ebay and see where it goes.

        Those are ASKING prices, not SELLING prices. Big difference.

        Here's some completed listings. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_gtc=...mplete=1&rt=nc

        Looks like around $20 is the going selling price.

          If I were you I would put this book away for a few more years to come, the price might increase.
