On today’s market, your 1803 later edition book entitled “The Whole Duty of Man , Laid Down in a Plain and Familiar Way, for the Use of All, But Especially the Meanest Reader.Necessary for All Families with Private Devotions for Several Occasions” by H. Hammond, originally printed in 1657 and here published in the 19th century by F and C Rivington would sell for a high average of $100 - $150 at retail. (65GBP - 98GBP or 90 euro -135euro)
