Hello and Welcome,My name is Frank, I am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question. Your 1842 edition of "Handy Andy" written by Samuel Lover and published by William Nicholson and Sons would have a resale value of 18-25GBP in poor to fair condition. When dealing with antiquarian or collectible books, condition plays a major role in the resale value, as collectors are looking for top quality issues with the least amount of damage. Soiling, staining, binding damage, cover damage, or torn pages would result in a drop in value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today,Best of luck with your antiquarian book ,Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated,Thank You,FrankPlease let me know if you have any difficulties with our rating system.
