I am trying to determine the value of several items I have purchased over
the years for my book collection.  Two of these items aren't books, but
magazines or almanacs.

1.  Stafford's Almanack - 1792.  Published in New Haven by T. and S. Green.

        It's a 24 page pamphlet, light brown paper, slightly curled edges, some
small tears.  4 x 6.5 inches.  String binding.

2.  Harper's New Monthly Magazine No. 190.  March 1866.  

        The cover is slightly torn around the edges, last 10 pages missing a
corner.         There is some scotch tape on the binding.  6.5 x 10 inches.

3.  (Book)  History of Priestcraft In All Its Ages and Nations by William
Howitt,
edited by A Clergyman of New York.  1833.

        Title page indicates that it was published in London by Effingham Books
        and underneath this reads:  New York: Reprinted for the Booksellers     1833.
 Pages are in pretty good shape; no tears, with minimal spotting
(foxing?).  5 x 8 inches.  This appears to be an anti-catholic book of some
        sort.

If anyone has any knowledge as to the value of these items please let me
know!
