Book Values

Harold Bell Wright writes while horse watches over his shoulder
 
 
 

Prices in 2010-11 for the most desirable Harold Bell Wright titles are about half what they were ten years earlier. Prices for less desirable items are about one-third what they used to be. I am eager for the input of collectors and dealers and will modify these suggested values as required.  Following are my impressions of typical selling prices on eBay.  As always, any book is worth whatever a buyer and a seller agree on, and no two books are exactly alike. In addition to the variables I have listed below, prices are affected by signatures, inscriptions, tears, watermarks, general brightness, lettering, etc. Signed books and books inscribed by the author sell for much higher prices than those listed here. If you buy these books from a reputable dealer, the prices might be about twice the figures suggested here. A color copy dust jacket adds about $10-12 to the value of one of the rare books that does not have an original dust jacket.
