Zane Grey Collection Value?

Post by Paul Stro » Sat, 08 Aug 1998 04:00:00



Hi all,

I recently came across (the location will remain secret ;) a collection of
62 Zane Grey novels, all in excellent condition--no fading, most have
some sort of thin, onion-skin like dust jacket (no designs). The
publisher is Walter J. Black, Inc., Roslyn, NY. The dates vary from book
to book, but seem to hover around the 1940's-50's, if I remember
correctly. I have no other information about them, unfortunately, but the
seller wanted only $200 (Canadian) for the lot. I don't usually buy books
unless I would read them myself, and I wouldn't read these ones, so it
would be a for-profit deal exclusively, and I'm hesitant to go to the
bother unless the profit is high and there's a demand for them as well.
Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Paul

These books in fine condition are only worth a few dollars each, say between
$3.00 to $7.00 US.
