What does this mean?

This is a first edition, first printing of Martin Chuzzlewhit by Charles Dickens that was published in 1844 by Chapman and Hall. Hallmarks of the first edition, first printing of this title are the included errata and the inclusion of 100L on the signpost in the frontispiece illustration by Phiz. The title/publisher pages are not missing, as they are included in the photos here and the loose page 198 will not impact value. The binding appears to be original. The estimate is based on actual past recent auction sales of comparables.

s the estimated sale price based on just an amalgamation of past sale prices for a similar item on Catawiki and/or eBay, other sites? Is the Mearto appraisal considered to be somewhat official, at least perhaps to Catawiki?

We are interested in selling - but have read there can be problems with Catawiki when you are a seller based in North America shipping to Europe. Do you have any other suggestions or is Catawiki the best bet? Does Catawiki operate like an auction, selling lots of similar type, in one go, online?

I am not familiar with Catawiki, it is a site and platform I have not heard of nor used.

What database do you use to give the estimate, based on "actual past recent auction sales of comparables?"

Is a Mearto appraisal an official appraisal?
