eh, it's kind of true... i don't think there is really THAT big of a market for 200 year old first edition Shakespeare plays
User avatar #70 to #33 - hhanako (07/16/2014) [-]
1804 wouldn't be first edition mate, considering shakespeare lived in what, the 1600s?

Its more funny when you're a Turk because 'Am' means cunt in Turkish.
Side note: 'Am' doesnt mean the scientific saying as 'Vagina',it's pretty much a slang like 'Cunt'

unfortunately the Turkish have no sense of humor

Was that supposed to be an insult?

Rick will give you at least 30% of its worth if not more, he DOES have to sell that **** again, and pay employees commission and hourly pay.

try the dude from Hardcore pawn dude brought in a meticulously made model of the stadium in Brooklyn, and the owner of the store there offered him $100, the cost of the parts alone was worth ass loads more than that.

I work in an Antiquarian Book store and I can tell you, not all old books are wort that much. I had some pretty nasty old books in my hands, like from shakespeare and they were worth like 50 bucks. The value is almost all the time topic related. for example, we sold a book of the olympic games of 1936 for 150 euro. And like 99% of our theatre/poem/whatev books are not even worth 100 euro the piece, even the really fcking old ones.

Also, if u got questions about old/antiquarian books, just feel free to ask.

Also, im going to take a look what the book in op's picture might be worth

I think if someone wanted to fool me into selling valueable books for cheap they would say something like this.
#25 to #23 - hauntergyrados (07/16/2014) [-]
Alright, that was faster than expected.

They go from 6€ to 35€ the book.

As I said, not that much, but it's something

im assuming pre and post printing press. then it would trickle further to original copy or reprint

I had a group ~400 year old danish bible things. Pretty sure they weren't important, but old books are pretty cool, you could see the imprint from the printing press.
User avatar #75 to #28 - hauntergyrados (07/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, old books look amazing as fck.
Yesterday I had a bible which was hand bound in leather and with gilt edges.
Frakin' awesome

If they're legit, that collection will be worth a small fortune. If you can find the missing book it will be worth a **** load more.
#26 to #6 - Rascal (07/16/2014) [-]
I work in an auction house, collections like this are fairly common. Even with the missing book you would be looking at around £400, and that's if they sell. Most collectors wont buy Shakespeare collections that are only 200 years old.

As far as the first pages go it isn't in old english
#12 to #11 - johrai (07/16/2014) [-]
Shakespeare's work was written in Middle English, if I'm not mistaken. In any case, that page and any introductory work should be done in modern English. 1806 wasn't that long ago

And, I could get one of those in Ofsted for a quid.

On the subject of old books, I've found an old Bible (or a collection of verses, I don't understand key parts of the writing). It says it was printed in 1780, in norwegian-ized danish, which is amazing, considering that Norway was a really poor. Of course, I scanned this book with a UV-light searching for signs of the Illuminati or the masoners, with no luck.
