I can give a rough estimate. Do you see which one it is on this page? http://www.visitfromstnicholas.com/
The odds are it is anywhere from $30 to $200 depending on which book and its condition. I've seen them go for as much as $300, but I haven't seen them go for more. I like most of the 1896 McLoughlin editions.
If you have more info, I can probably give a little better range.
I would definitely not sell it if it came from your grandmother. It has a lot of history and I am sure your family will enjoy having it for another hundred years!

I have searched abbe books ebay and book find. I can find the book itself but no value. I have no intentions on selling it but would like to insure it. Does anyone know its value?
