What does this mean?

This is an antique first edition printing of Charles Dickens title, The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. With forty-three illustrations by R. Seymour and Phiz that was published in 1837 by Chapman and Hall. The book appears to be bound in its original cover. The seperation of the spine to the body is a fairly easy repair and will not impact value. This technically did not come with a dustjacket, which is the paper cover over the bound book cover. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables.

In the mearto database, I am seeing editions of this book in better condition selling for 300-500 USD. How is your estimate arrived at?
