Value of a 1858 Webster's Dictionary?
While older reference books and dictionaries do not necessarily hold their value, antique volumes are a different item. Books in excess of 100 years or so may be sought after by collectors. Their value is often determined by age, rarity, condition, and the market for the specific title. An antique bookseller is a good resource for helping to determine a book's value.

The book is not in too bad of condition considering the age of the book. I would contact an antique bookseller and speak with them. Normally any book that is over 100 years old is sought by collectors.
Considering this book is much older than that I would get an expert opinion on the price and how much the book is worth. Selling it on eBay is not the best way to sell a book like this.

It is over 100 years old and therefore an antique. Take it to two or three book dealers for free appraisals.
