How to find values for old medical books.  If you are trying to determine the value of a Civil War or earlier medical text books, surgical manuals, anatomy books, first check on www.abebooks.com , if you are unable to find exactly the book or version you are looking for there, then try www.alibris.com

Other sources are www.bookfinder.com and http://www.biblio.com/booksellers/233/Civil_War_Bookdealers.html .

Under no circumstances should you accept the offer of some guy with a web site who just wants to pay you nothing for your medical book and then turn around and sell it to a collector (like me) for ten times what he paid you.  Also keep an eye on the books section of www.eBay.com for what similar books are selling for in the antiquarian books section or in the Civil War sections.
