P-40 Operating Manual

Hello all!
My father was a principle design engineer for CW during WW2 and was instrumental in the design of the P-40. He died in Feb of this year (2011) at the age of 92. I am discovering many items he collected including things like a phenolic scale model which I assume was given to him while working there. I also ran across an original operating manual (it has a blue cover). I am interested in listing it on EBay, but have not run across anything like it in any of my searches. Does anybody here own one of these, and if so I am wondering what the value might be? Thank you for any help you might provide.

My father was an amazing man, and had many stories about this airplane as well as all of his exploits up to and including the Atlas and Saturn Booster rockets he also helped engineer. He worked with J.S.McDonnel and even met Werner Von Braun after his immigration to the US.
