First edition of "Historical Sketches of Plymouth" by Hendrick B. Wright. Book is in good shape overall except a split in the binding along the edge of the spine. Book is an author signed first edition published in 1873 by Luzerne Co. PA and includes 25 photographs. I'm looking for any information about the book and an estimation of value. Also if you have any info you could tell me about any appropriate book sellers or auction houses who might specialize in a book like this. Thanks
Unsure of dimensions

Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 150 to 300 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
