Edinburgh is written at the bottom
Age 1905 is on the inside page

The Book A History of Accounting and Accountants , ***** ***** has an estimated value on the current market for an average of £ 200.00-225.00. If you plan on selling. There are some great sites you can sell from.

Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally.
Etsy is a great site.
There is also craigslist locally which is free. Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay, I recommend setting reserves.
