If you have a comment or question about this website, I would be happy to hear from you. However, before you send me an email, please be advised that while I do own several old books, including many Reid titles, I am not an expert on book values. If you send me an email asking me how much I think your Reid book is worth, you will be wasting your time because I have no idea - so please don't ask!

Apart from having your book appraised by a professional book dealer, probably the best way to determine a book's value is to see what others are charging for a similar volume. Keep in mind that first editions of any book are more valuable than a copy printed fifty years later! I can tell you that your copy of The Rifle Rangers, for instance, isn't going to be worth a lot unless it was published in 1850 in London by William Shoberl! If it has no copyright date at all, then chances are it's a later reprint and isn't worth a great deal.

I recommend you check to see what other people are charging for books at one of the below listed sites. You can also buy Reid books at these sites, of course.

However, if there's something else Mayne Reid-related that you want to ask about or comment upon, please contact me at Thanks!
