    Hi Mary,
    The book is best advertised on a site like ebay or maybe an american site ( if you are american ) such as
    There wont be many people here looking to purchase it sorry. This is where people place photos of their own collection.
    Its best advertised on one of those sites.
    If its a 1912 edition like my book it will fetch somewhere between $100 - $200 , I have seen some advertised for more than this but sometimes there is a few on these sites and when there is a few , it wont go for more than $200.

    For the best idea of what your book may be worth and how many copies are floating out there, I suggest searching, which is where thousands of booksellers list collectible books.

    I came up with 31 copies of your first edition ranging in price from $29-325 dollars. Which goes to show that old book pricing is _all_ over the place. Remember-an asking price is just that. It's not what the book actually sold for.

    Totally agree, I bought a lot of mine from Abe and some at auction. I also find very good as well, they have all sorts of things and I got a few of my books from there. is excellent for other antiques.
    I got mine for roughly $70. I have seen this book go as high as $200 in ebay but dont think they sell well at that price n ebay.
