I have inherited "Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb with Twelve Illustrations in Permanent Photography from the Boydell Gallery", published "London Bickers and Son, I, Leicester Square 1878." "Elzevir Press:-Printed by John C. Wilkins, 9, Castle Street, Chancery Lane."Small sticker inside cover "Sold by W. Whiteley Stationers, Westbourne...."
The brown-red cloth bound cover has gilt lettering and gilt and black embossed decorations of fairies, elves, baby on a mushroom, the moon and a bat. Inside cover is black ink handwriting "Edith Alice Fort from Mama, Xmas 1878".

Would anyone be able to put a value on this book for me? Thank you!
