Expert:  ncsunburst replied 1 year ago.

Hi, From my research your Edition of Bunyan's Pilgrims Progress and other works with notes printed by Dunn & Wright, Glasgow and published by James Semple, Glasgow, would have been a later printing from the early 1880's. There were earlier printings done in Glasgow in the 1860's, but they had different publishers and printers. In good condition your book would have a value from 250.00 to excellent condition 325.00 GBP. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike

I would just like to know if you knew anywhere or anyone that may be looking to buy such items
Expert:  ncsunburst replied 1 year ago.

Hi, The best way to get top dollar for your book is to focus on the collector you can try sites like Etsy, Ebay UK or Craigeslist but I would try a local auction house with a good reputation and has been in business for while that advertises so that the collectors of such books can see the book before bidding on it the day of auction. Thanks Mike
