A Question for you guys who know about the prices of rare books (1 Viewer)

I know that Buk manuscripts sell for upwards of $100 sometimes. Sometimes, people go crazy and pay upwards of $1,000. So, let me ask you this. I know you guys aren't professional appraisers, but can you give me a ballpark figure on the following items:

A copy of an unpublished William Blake manuscript. When I say copy, I don't mean like a modern copy, I mean a copy made by, I guess, a person who would have published Blake when he was alive. Kind of like Buk making his carbon copies. Imagine a carbon of an unpublished Blake manuscript, made during his lifetime.

And, a first edition of Moby-Dick.

Yeah, I know, this is pretty random, but, please, humor me.
