I need some help from this collective wisdom in determining the value of
this book. My husband brought the following book home after digging
it out of storage at the old homestead:
Portrait and Biographical Record of Western Oregon
Published 1904 by Chapman Publishing Company in Chicago.
This book is about 5 inches thick, and consists of interesting
biographies and some pix of nearly all of the Oregon families that
were around in 1904. It is leather bound in black leather that would
probably resore well, the pages are in great shape, and the page edges
are dyed red. The typical biography is probably a long newspaper
article worth and includes family history, activites, land owned,
buisness owned, stuff like that.
I suspect this book may be valuable. We are not interested in selling,
but might consider giving people access to information out of the
book. Can anyone assist in steering me to how to find the value?
