Question
Annapurna
Annapurna  
Hello,
I have a 1952 copy of ANNAPURNA First Conquest of an 8000 Meter Peak by Maurice Herzog.  Would you tell me if this book is valuable, or if I should donate it to a library.
Thank you.

Answer
Hello

While I wouldn't take my word for it - and I am an expert on literature, not so much book values, it looks like a first edition of this book in good condition is averaging less than $4

If you still have reservations, I would consult a local book dealer and they will be able to help you more specifically - I am not an appraiser or claim to know much except for where to look for a general idea of market value (linked above).

Thanks!

Expertise

As an instructor of literature and the humanities, my experience is as broad as the experience I have gained in the classroom. As a published author and journalist, I have first hand industry experience. Between the two, I have the experience, knowledge, and research experience that could certainly answer any questions that may be asked of me.

Experience

Quite specifically, as an instructor I am an extremely well qualified candidate as an initial resource as well as a person who knows specifically where to gather the correct information at any given time. As a published journalist and novelist, my experience broadens into the fundimental understanding of the craft and its application and business. I was also previously an AllExperts expert several years ago, and was well received by all who I helped.

Organizations
Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society.

Publications
There are a tremendous amount of publications my work has appeared in and I can't list them all because of space constraints. Many newspapers, radio, and PBS programming. Also, many literary journals for both fiction and nonfiction academic work.
