Still have your childhood books?
You could be sitting on a fortune!
If you have any of 10 original books, you could be in for a small windfall if you decided to sell them on.
The Hound of the Baskervilles.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit
This kids classic was released in 1983, however, if you had one of the copies of the private print run from 1901 you could be looking at a cool £50,000.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
If you have one of the 1969 originals lying around then you could expect a return of around £50,000. This book is still a kids favourite 47 year later!
Having just one of the first editions of a Harry Potter book will fetch you £80.
Having the original of all seven Harry Potter books could see a nice £30,000 – even more if any of the books are signed!
Green Eggs and Ham
One of these 1950’s editions of the books has been known to fetch as much as £3550. I can’t say I have heard of this book though if I’m honest…
The Hunger Games
These books only hit the stores between 2008 – 2010 but they are already worth a few quid.
If you have the originals of all 3 books then you could pocket £80! It may be worth hanging onto them for another few year and see if they rise in price.
His Dark Materials
This trilogy was first released in 1995 and if you have one of the originals of Northern Lights then you could pocket a hefty £500.
Ahhh how good is this?! I love watching the film!
The book was first released in 1981 however a 1985 edition of the book has sold for £440 in the past – well worth having a rummage and seeing if you have a copy of this book.
The Wizard of Oz
The version that came out in 1900 is the one that’ll see you quids in. It will have 24 colourful illustrated images.
Dig it out and become around £2,400 richer!
Who doesn’t love George? My daughter used to be Curious George mad when she was younger and it was one of the kids TV shows that I could tolerate.
If you have one of the books that came out in 1941 then you could expect to bring in £2,800.
