    So I came across a copy of Eliot Porter's All Under Heaven. This is the limited edition cloth bound with gold foil stamp. #68/250. It also includes an 8x10 dye transfer print. The print is printed by a third party not Mr. Porter. Both the book and the print are signed by Porter. It is still in the publishers shipping box. Absolutely new condition. My question is dose anyone know where to look to find what a price should be for this book? Any help would be great.

    Thanks, Rich

    Try Bookfinder.com, you can put additional description info like "limited" in the keywords to narrow results, there are check boxes for signed copies and first editions.
    My bookseller wife adds that you may not find the limited on bookfinder, if it is there, you probably want to throw out the bottom and top prices you find. Also, a potentially more meaningful source will be prices realized of auctions. Sotheby's started as a book auction house, and may have current information of what that book may be worth. There is also ebay completed auctions.
    Also, the WestLicht Photographica Auction may be another source to try; https://www.westlicht-auction.com/index.php?id=7131&_ssl=off&lang=3

    I haven't checked the value, but I'll gladly buy it from you for $62.95:whistling::smile:
