What do you think it's worth?

I had a long time tenant move out recently and he left boxes of junk behind. In a box full of old books I found a 1st Edition 'Chapman's Piloting and Small Boat Manual'. (1962 I think--don't have it in front of me) It's amazingly thin, @ 120 pages . I've tried looking up it's value on the net with little luck. It's in 'good' condition, (not 'mint', but better than 'fair')
What do you think it's worth?

Found one on eBay...

I found one on eBay, item 120241405546, currently at $2.99. The seller states that it is the 1957-1958 edition. I will watch the listing to see what it sells for and let you know.

It's worth a good read so you can compare how far we've come.
After that, who knows a good laugh or two can be priceless.

I have the 1968-69 edition in fair condition. Inside the front cover it say's its the 46th. edition. It is an interesting read but other than GPS and the new technolagy in 12v. systems we haven't advanced all that much.

I have the 64th Edition (2006) - 900 pages, and do consider it the bible. Not as simple to read as many "learn to" but a incredible array of info that I would buy 5 other books to have the info....The last few years they have truly embellished what they cover and it does go a long way further I bet than the 60, 70, 80 eras when they printed...
