i have a number of old books (printed from 1750onwards)
Could anyone recommend a person or even website for valuation?
Try Kenny's in Galway. They changed to online service only a while ago but are now also abvailable again as a real bookshop. Des Kenny is a great help : http://www.kennys.ie/

I always find DeBurca Rare Books in Dawson Street Dublin excellent to deal with, they are where I go to source and buy most of my collection of Rare Old Books.
They have a website but its nearly as old as some of the books they sell its so out of date.
Best to either visit or give them a call on 016719609
I have below a link to some other Irish dealers in Rare Books for your info.
