Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
If you see a rate me message and I have not given you an answer With the value you are not to rate anything.
Again, ignore any rate me messages until you see my answer with the value.
Do you see any words on the first few pages stating that your 1905 edition is a first edition?
Kind regards,
Doris

I dislike having to drag this out but to give an accurate answer I need to know the what the covers are made of and the condition of your book.
Values range from $1.07-$425 depending on these things.
