While policy prohibits us from providing authentication, appraisals, or recommendations, a few good FAQs on rare books and manuscripts can be found at the following URLs:

One approach to obtaining a rough estimate of value is to search online databases (such as www.abebooks.com) for individual titles to see if other copies are currently available on the market.  You might also consider contacting an ABAA dealer for an appraisal (see the ABAA FAQ cited above).
