Default Value of a book?

I really dont know where to put this so I will post it here

I have a copy of "A modern dry fly code" by Vincent Marinaro that I was going to trade off. I did a quick search online and they sell anywhere from $30-$200 for the 8th edition I have on Amazon and others. That is a huge spread, anybody know a place online to get a better idea of value for this book? Its the 8th Edition from 1974. Thanks for your help.

Hi Reviveourhomes,

You may have already seen this listing on Amazon. This is the retail value and you may have a problem getting that much. As a trade you might get full value. It seems that the older the book is the less value it has.

I sold a lifetime collection of gun books to a dealer. I had near a hundred books and got $600.


Amazon Listing

Modern Dry-Fly Code by Vincent C. Marinaro (Hardcover - 1974)
3 Used & new from $50.00

Frank, thanks for the reply. Yes I saw that one and this one.

Amazon.com: Used and New: A Modern Dry-Fly Code

On that page they range from $130-$300, thats why I was a bit confused on the actual value of the book.

Thanks again for the reply.

A lot depends on the condition of the book and dust jacket. Also an 8th edition will be worth a lot less than a 1st.

You can always call Judith Bowman in New York State, or Ken Callahan in New Hampshire.
