    Hi guys,

    My dad first showed me this

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_4160wt_1139

    And then showed me one of our books. It's published in 1846(same as the link) and by the same publishers; named "George" or "the the planter of the isle of france"

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_(novel)

    Since the book look very similar to the one on ebay which went for £2,500 how should I go about getting it looked at and valued?

    Hmm, you could try. Although I suspect that the real reason why the other book sold for such a high price on eBay was the letter.
    Edit: As for how you could get it valued: the best way to go about it would be to go to a bookshop dealing in rare books.
