I have an original copy of the Lunar Orbiter Atlas of the Moon and am thinking of selling it. How much might one in good condition be worth? Thanks

I glanced on amazon, it is going to depend on condition and if it was an ex-library copy. Books are weird, sometimes they sell for incredible prices other times the same book won't sell for 50% of what it should. It really depends on the buyer. However Albris is showing some in the hundreds of dollars. Throw a price on it in the S&S and see what happens.

FWIW some books are listed at very unreasonable prices. I once needed a book for work (specialty wireless text). Saw it listed multiple places for $800-$1000 new and used. Ended up finding it new for $60.

Darren, did you end up selling yours?
I just snagged one on Amazon for $40; but it was alone - all the others were over $100, going up to nearly $500. If you really want to move it quick, probably $50-$70 will do it.
