Finding the Value of an Encyclopedia Set

I have a full 8 book set of Waverley encyclopedias. I don't know if they are worth any money. They are over at least 50 years old. They are still in good condition. How do I determine their value in order to sell them? What are my other options? donation? etc. Thank you for any advice.

What do the encyclopedias look like? My Father bought me a set around that time frame. The set I had was destroyed by water damage. I was wishing that I still had them to put in a curio with other collectibles. They would be a reminder of the sacrifice made. We were a low income family. How much would you sell them for If the set is like the one I had.

The inquiry is about the 1959 Funk and Wagnalls set.
