American Book Prices Current (ABPC)  MPL Special Link
Want to know what that book is worth? Or a map, signed photo, autograph, letter, manuscript or other printed or handwritten paper item? If it, or something similar, came up for auction from September 1, 1975 through last month, you'll find it on American Book Prices Current. The database is updated monthly with actual hammer prices from public auctions held in North America, Europe, Australia and other locations. Unlike previous versions of ABPC, users can search by price (entering the number in the keyword box) or the name of the auction house. If no results are retrieved, put in fewer terms, such as just an author's last name. Print, e-mail or download up to 200 records per search.
