Hi Mrs. Bilby, thanks for getting in touch. - but honestly, these music books are very hard to value. Lots of variables. ...I see people trying to to get over $500 for them...and yet I have bought plenty on eBay for under $100. ...Is yours a 1st edition ? ...same as the photo on the page you sent me the question from ? That's got to be good. ...but if it's torn or coloured in or has a new thread won't probably fetch top dollar. ...$200 would be a starting price for a decent enough copy...I'd guess. ...feel free to send photos [email protected] ...back cover as will if you can. ...and title page. Regards Andrew
