Value of this Baskerville Bible?

Hi everyone, this is a bit of an urgent inquiry.

I have seen a Baskerville Bible offered for sale at auction and am wondering how much it is worth.

This is clearly in need of serious conservation, but it is really impossible to pin down a price until the hammer drops. Let us know how it goes!


Exactly. It’s worth whatever the highest bidder ends up paying. It’s impossible to predict how people will behave in the heat of the moment.

Assuming all is there, in Pound. 1500, as for the serious collector, Condition is everything. But than you also compete with the Scoundrels who would sell it Piecemeal.

so expect 8-10 k Pounds.
