Most old dictionaries, references etc., have very little value, a few dollars at most. You can search online, EBay, Craig's List, etc., and this site for possible value:

I have an 1890 Webster's Dictionary that was rebound in 1962. I still have the work order! Any ideas on the value of such a book?

Many people have old books they think are valuable and would like to sell. Most old dictionaries, references etc., have very little value-a few dollars at most. Encyclopedias dated after 1923 are essentially worthless but crafters may be interested for the old pictures. Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc., receive donations of tons of old encyclopedias and reference books but send them to recycling centers or dumps as they cannot use or sell them.

You can check online for old book collectors, on EBay, Craigslist and other retail sites for possibilities. Everything is now online and updated constantly so old books are just that-old.

I have come to own a 1896 reprint of the original Webster's Dictionary. I have tried to research it online, but have found no information. Is there any value to it? The spine was torn off when I received it. I would like to have it rebound. But do not want to take away from any value ot may have.

Thank you.

Most dictionaries have little value-a few dollars at most, especially those in rough shape. Even repaired books are not worth the repair cost. You can research online and try this book site:

I have a Webster's Complete Reference Dictionary and Encyclpedia published in 1951 by The World Publishing Company, Cleveland and New York. Despite it having 1277 pages and a hardcover, it is extremely lightweight. Dealers are showing a lot of interest however, I cannot locate a value anywhere. It has no dustcover and the spine is missing although the clothed hard covers are attached. Can anyone give me an idea of what it is worth in any currency?
