Question by ninedemonsgod: How much is antique book worth?
I recently put a book "The Arabian Nights the best known tales, edited by Kate Dovglas and Nora A Smith. Illustratored by Maxfield Parrish" printed in 1949 on layaway. It's in very good condition, the cover have a pic. It's gonna to cost me 125 dollrs, I put it down on layaway for 35 dollars. I would like to know what it's worth if anyone can help. I tried www.Alibris.com and www.abebooks.com and none of them have one that was printed in 1949. Can anyone help me with this?

This is not very old, and must be a reprint, since Maxfield Parrish dates from a half century earlier. Of course, the condition of the book and the quality of the printing will have a lot to do with value.

It’s probably worth like a zillion dollars or so.
