I can't afford that - please can I type out the books that I need valued?
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Online - someone has valued it as £700

I don't know why someone would do that on a very late commercial edition. Unless I'm getting something wrong about your copy vs what I am seeing?

This was originally published in 1885. So once we hit the 1960s, it's quite late in the game.
