1916 T Publication

I'm not at all knowledgeable about Model T's. But I have an octogenarian friend who has an old book about T's, he said his dad bought it many years ago because he had a mid-teens T. He's not looking to sell the book but was asking if I know if it is a common pub, and what its value might be. Does anyone here have any info on it? It is copyrighted 1916, here are a few images from it: Thanks.

Victor Page was a prolific writer and promoter of books involving things that moved on the ground and in the air. The Model T book you show was updated over the years to include the newer Ford cars, trucks and tractors.

Quick search on Ebay; They come up often and the prices can range from all most nothing (I got mine for 6.50+ shipping) to $26.99 then there are the over priced ones, that don't sell.

Thanks for the info. As said, he has no interest in selling it but wanted a sort-of value for it probably in order to either share it to his grandkids, or to protect it from further deterioration.

I found one of those a few years after I bought my T and love it, a great reference.

The detailed drawings in those books are amazing.

Mine is a 1922 version. I find it easier to follow itís instructions than using the original Ford service manual.
