Hello, whilst having a clear out this morning i came across

This answer was rated:


whilst having a clear out this morning i came across an old atlas that i`d remembered finding some 20+yrs ago in a junk shop, and i was wondering if it has any financial worth today,

its a Harmsworth world atlas and gazeteer, i`ve never found any sign relating to age, no printed dates etc, however, it only refers to the "british empire"..the "german empire" etc, based on this, i can only guess that it might well be pre-1914,

i would be very grateful and interested if you have any information on these books,

yours, a.lewis
