RE: Wish the copy I had was in saleable condition

You MAY be surprised books that exhibit actual use MAY be worth more than pristine copies? Especially if there are highlighting and underlining and hand written notes in the margins.

My 1884 book has "Ex Libris Samuel Fulton Covington" along with a black and white engraving of two side-wheeler ferries pasted onto the inside of the front cover. The marked price was $50.
