I'm currently trying to look up the status of an old book for my
grandmother. Does anyone know of a site where I can find information on
the relative rarity, number of editions printed, prices, etc.? Something
that would find insurance replacement values would be perfect.
BTW: The book is _The President's Daughter_ by Nan Briton, London 1927.
No ISBN (not customary in the era), no codes indicating what edition. In
mediocre condition, if it's worthless, we're considering re-binding it
since it's been in the family for years.
