What's it Worth?

If you have a first edition 1966 Random House "Valley Of The Dolls" in your garage, you may be one up on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. And you don't have to go onto "The Antique Roadshow" to appraise it. In many cases, an excursion into cyberspace will do the trick.

The most user-friendly way to find the value of your book is to hop onto a search service, punch in the details of your tome and hit the hot buttons. You'll frequently find someone selling a similar book or someone in search of the title. Either way, you'll get a feel for what value has been attached to it by booksellers and collectors. If you find both, you'll get a pretty solid idea of where the book stands. That Jacqueline Susann novel we mentioned? It's selling for $540.

  • Advanced Book Exchange
    Touted as the "world's largest network of independent booksellers," this site enables visitors to buy and sell rare, used and out-of-print books. There's a new feature each week and the "Ask Abe" section fields inquiries. Plug your book info into the site's search engine and it will pull up matches from its network of 18 million listings.

  • Books and Books Collecting
    If you can't find your book on the Web, there's a chance you'll find it through this search engine. The engine searches the collections of 22 online booksellers. If that's not enough, the guide recommends 39 additional book sites.

  • Alibris
    Part of this site's goal is to turn you into a book connoisseur. If you click on the "learn" link and then on "glossary of book terms," you'll soon be littering cocktail soirees with your newfound knowledge of collectible manuscripts.
