John Potter bible - print date and value? (01/09/2015)

I recently came across a John Potter German bible , it's leather bound with metal clasps. I am trying to find out how old it is. Where would a print date have been shown? There is a picture of pope Leo in it showing he was elected pope in 1878 so I guess it was printed after that date. Please let me know where to find the print date. Thanks Larry Kummerl

Value of 1939 Encyclopedia Americana? (05/04/2011)

I have a complete set of Encyclopedia Americana from 1939, and I was wondering what the value might be.... They are in great condition. No torn pages, a little dust on the tops of them, they appear to be bound in a faux leather material. Is there even value there??? Thank You, Ryan M. Allen

German Bible 1866 John E. Potter & Company (05/25/2010)

I have searched all over the internet for info on this bible. I bought it at an antique store in Wisconsin while traveling. It has old letters, church schedules, dried flowers and a couple of prints that do not identify the printer. It has a beautiful leather case with a rounded cross in front and back with the saints on each corner. I did see the very same bible on the site with the same question. What is it worth? It does have a family name on the front: L. Ginthner. It reads in the first few pages in english and the rest of the book is in german except for the titles on the pictures that have a very thin piece of protection paper. In the front page it has a certificate of genuineness. I have held onto it since I purchased it in 2001. Any information would be appreciated. Sincerely, Jennifer Rankin

Old German Bible (04/15/2009)

I have a German Bible in my possession that is dated 1866 I believe. It is a translation from Dr. Joseph Franz von Allioli. This bible was printed in Philadelphia USA by Johann E. Potter and Company in 1866. This particular bible also has a certificate of genuiness in the beginning of the book. Fr. Pustef has sold to John Potter and Company a set of sterotype plates of the Allioli Bible, which he was allowed to publish and print the work in America. This is the original German version. Have any idea what its worth is? It is in excellent condition. I attached a couple pictures of it. Thank you!
