Hi There~

My name is Nora, and I am here to help with your question.

I would be happy to help with your book.

In order to ascertain the value, I will need to know the publisher name inside this volume.

Would it be possible for you to send me a clear, in-focus full image of the title an publisher page(s)?

When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.

If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:


A super easy method, which is free and no sign-in required is to go to:

1. Click "Computer".
2. Double click the image you want to upload.
3. Click "Start Upload".
4. When the image appears on your screen, just copy the link from that page and paste it on this page. The address I need will look like this example:

I look forward to reading back from you with the information.
