So, on October 19th a friend of mine said they received hundreds of books from an old veteran who recently died, and if I could come find valuable books that would be worth selling for them and splitting the proceeds. I went over on October 24th and sorted through about 250 books. I only know the timing because I checked my texting history on my phone. What gets me, though, is I had never heard of Jan til that day, and just today I found out that I discovered him and also first acquired an Imperial Luger pamphlet of his the literal day he died. It is such a weird feeling that makes me take a step back and think about the timing of existence and all that. Life is just something taking us along for a ride in which we cannot really comprehend fully. But, it can be good.

So, the books are gorgeous. I'm not a business, just a young adult helping a friend sell a bunch of random books they were given, so registering as a business isn't an option. Are we allowed to sell on this website? If not, wheres the optimal place to list them? What would a good valuation be? In light of Jans passing... I suppose that changes the value, too?

Also, since I'm new and now I've read the etiquette post... I learned I should have my first name here to comply with the rules. I dug through every option in the menus and didn't find where to change it. How do I change it?

I also am not seeing what the maximum image size for uploads is, as my uploads are not working at all and nothing around the upload dialog says anything about limits. I inserted a small preview of the main pic and linked the rest in Google Drive for now.

Thanks all

Nice books. I think $250 for each of them is a good starting point. Check FleaBay in the completed sales search to find more current pricing. Take 20% off of that and sell to a younger collector that will put it to use. Most of the old timers have them and the younger folk don't place much value on a book or on the information contained in said book. These are the first place I start my research and then go beyond and even on the Web. There is a minimum number of posts to be able to place a WTS but I am not sure what that # is. Admin can comment.

Ok, thank you. Looks like ~300-350 apiece on Ebay for first editions in very good shape, so 250 each would be a decent deal for both sides involved in a private sale.
