Am wondering if this book has much value to a collector (which I'm not). I bought it at a local flea market in south Alabama on 9/5/2010. My thought was that my daughter would love it for the great classics (The Purloined Letter, The Pit and The Pendulum, The Tell-Tale Heart, etc.), but got to thinking that if a collector has any interest, I might be able to offset some of my daughter's college tuition by reselling it. I only paid $1, but will hang onto it for the great stories if the general consensus is that it's not very valuable. I don't know if the page "Buy War Bonds" actually belongs with the book. Maybe someone else does? You can see it's in kind of rough shape, but all of the other pages are still attached at the binding, are legible, and there is no writing, etc., inside. Alas, no signatures, either! Thank you! sh

    abe.com,Alibris, Amazon.com are all book websites where you can find book values. The book condition is very poor. Another book was sitting, offset, on top of it and you can see where bugs ate the exposed area in an "L" shape. Again, here is a web page. (Keep looking though!)

    Thanks for the info! I wondered what caused that condition to the front!
