I have a buddy that owns a Army-Navy store and he has a customer who brought in a complete 8 vol set of numbered and autographed works of Sir Alfred Lord Tennyson Published in 1909 only and limited to 1000 8vol sets. Anyone have a clue about value? Anyone hear a book collector who is interested? BrenLover

Well I guess that makes it a first printing. Hmmm, My old Physics professors has an original copy of Benjamin Franklin's book. I don't know about the worth, of your set. Contact the literature department or historical department head at Harvard or some place that would be where I would start. You might even start at a local book store. Benjamin

Try these websites to see if you can find the books listed. It'll give you an idea of whether they're worth much or not. Prices listed tend to be on the high side. [url]http://www.abe.com/[/url] [url]http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/subst/books/misc/bibliofind.html/[/url]

Sorry about the "autographed" part. Tennyson died on Oct. 6, 1892.

Yeah, I realized that after searching some on the net. My buddy isn't exaclty the literary type so he might be mistaken. BrenLover
