This answer was rated:

I have a book published 1908 - "Hunts with Jorrocks" - No.225 of a limited edition of 350 signed by the artist G. Denholm Armour, published by Hodder & Stoughton, London. What is it worth?,
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Are the pages, cover, and spine in good condition?
Customer: Yes.
JA: Do you know if your copy is a first edition?
Customer: I presume it is a first edition as it is limited to 350 copies. How do I find out?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: No - that`s as much as I know about it but I do know who the original owner was if that is any help.

Again, thank you! Is there any additional information that I can provide? Rating my professionalism using the 5-star system is the only way that JustAnswer recognizes my work in helping you and closes the question. It does not cost you anything additional. (https://www.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-rate-answer) Also, I don't participate in calls that cost additional money for you: these requests come from JustAnswer and not the expert. If you have any more questions, let me know!

Thank you for reviewing your answer, but I noticed that you did not rate it. Is there any additional information I can provide?
