Hi Andaub & Moderation team,

I have come across your post, and noticed that no responses were posted on this forum.
Have you managed to obtain any information and/or indications of pricing/ valuation on your books listed above?

I have some books from your above list (early year publications 1947,1948,1954,1960)

I was wondering if you could please share any information you may have on the following titles, as I'm trying to obtain further valuation information.
Mine are in French.
I have checked with Artcurial who, had a sale in 2017 and some of the titles below (published in the same year) went from 500EU to 5,500EU.

1) 1947 – Le tresor de rackham le rouge.
2) 1947/1949 - L'etoile mysterieuse – (mine is 1954)
3) 1947 - L'oreille cassee – Casterman
4) 1947 - Le crabe aux pinces d'or
5) 1948 - Les 7 boules de crystal
6) 1954 - On a marche sur la lune
7) 1960 - Au Tibet – Casterman

I also have L'Ile Noire published in 1947 but this one is not on your list.

The condition of the books are very good except for 2 which have a few stains and my family name written on it.
Any info, would be really appreciated.

Thank you everyone!
