I am trying to figure out how much reserve to put on a 2 volume 1st edition set of Ulysses S. Grant's Personal Memoirs. Besides the facsimile reproduction of his autograph on Vol 1, there is a personal inscription with his original autograph. I looked on both Ebay and Bookfinders, but I could not find a set of his Memoirs that was personally signed by him. All the editions currently for sale only have the replica of his signature. Any idea of the value???
Oops - Sorry. I did a little more research and I now know that the Memoirs were published after he died, so the inscription is also a facsimile. So now I have a good idea of the value based on completed sales of similar books. Many thanks!
