Those books are desirable. I'm trying to remember if the 1st editions were leather bound or not. As to value,, I'd have to dig into my notes to remember.

I think they have surpassed $100 on ebay, but a more realistic value would probably be in the $45 to $75 neighborhood.

They are not leather; just leather looking. As Chet15 notes, I have also seen them go for over $100 on eBay. But, as he also notes, a more realistic price is in the $60 range. I happen to have an extra one for $60 shipped if someone is in need of a copy.

If you actually collect 77s it's invaluable and if I were getting ready to spend thousands for rifles then a $100 for the only reference book out there would be cheap.
