Inside Folder 1 is a booklet printed for the Riverside Land and Irrigating Company to promote the company. Though undated, the booklet probably has a relative date range between 1875 and 1877. The booklet contains information about the company's history and irrigating facilities; land prices, water rights, and construction costs; and Riverside's ecology, including climatic conditions, natural resources, and its fruit production capability. The folder also contains an undated price list for the booklet. Folder 2 contains a photocopy of a typed manuscript, itself a copy of a diary kept by Mrs. F. Daniels Battles from November 1875 to December 1882. After the death of Mrs. Battles, Mrs. J.S. Bordwell obtained a copy of the diary. She made the handwritten notations evident on the manuscript. The diary in Series I.2 contains brief but colorful entries on neighbors and acquaintances: injuries, deaths, and births; buildings and businesses; various wildlife and geological occurrences including quakes and floods; and recreational activities and criminal incidences. The folder also includes a 1967 cover letter by Esther Klotz regarding the diary's history and three items regarding early residents in the Riverside area: Captain Cornelius Jensen and his wife, Mercedec Alvarado and the Cover family (T.W. Cover had been a director of the Silk Center Association and later trustee of the S.C.C.A.). The information on these individuals had been compiled from other sources, some dating from the twentieth century. The connection of these three items to the Battles diary is unclear, other than that they may have been copied and donated by Klotz at the same time. Folder 3 contains paperwork regarding the manuscript written by Dr. James P. Greves in 1877. Though the folder does not include the original document, it does have a typed version created by Priestly Hall, who had misspelled the surname "Greves" in the copy. A photocopy in the folder contains the same information as the typed version with one notable difference; the photocopy shows handwritten notations, which are typed in the other document. A cover letter, probably from the 1950s, regarding the documents' history, is also in this folder. Folder 4 has a book by Arthur Bennett on the Mission Inn written in prose form. Both Bennett and Frank A. Miller signed the copy. The book has some acid migration of the print.

I found a book at a used book store that I have been wondering about. It is The Prose Tales of Edgar Allen Poe, First Series, W.J. Widdleton, Publisher. 1877. The binding is battered and the pages are yellowed with age, but otherwise it is in good shape with a lovely marbled cover. Someone is selling a similar book on Amazon for $155 dollars, but otherwise I cannot find it anywhere. Do you think that is a fair price? Thank you.

I have stumbled across your webset by luck perhaps? I have a book published in July of 1902 (if my reading of Roman numerals has not failed me) from the Roycroft Shop, East Astoria. The book (well essay) is titled: Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emmerson. I have been tried to find a value on the book before my father died but it appears the prices are scattered all over the place. The edition I own has a green suede cover, a hand-drawn portrait inside covered with vellum, the thick paper is not evenly cut (to me-as an artist-it almost appears as handmade paper). Where would I find a more accurate price on this book?
I have inherited a large collection of old books. I have found one that came with a dust cover that is not paper but a flower printed cardboard. Blossoms From The Clay by Sheridan Franzell Wood. Signed by him as a Christmas gift 1926. Published by Dorrance and Company Philidelphia. It came with a post card to order new books, a bulletin with his picture announcing his new books and a reprint of an article from The Sunday Vindicator, May 8, 1927 with a detailed story of the author. The book is in excellent condition.
I have a copy of Narratives and Adventures of Travellers in Africa. The book is in poor shape, with fading on the cover,spine and back, and the binding inside has separated. I could not find a date anywhere, though the cover says Alta Edition. What does make this book interesting is that it was bound backward. Does this make a book any more valuable?
I have a copy of Old Testament Stories Comically Illustrated, by Watson Heston, that I am contemplating selling. The cover is not in great shape, and the binding is very loose. While there are a few pages that are soiled by time, the illustrations show very little signs of fading and are in overall great shape. The book was a gift from the first dean of the Duke Law School, and has an inscription from him(not sure if this hurts the value or not).Thanks
