Hi - I check eBay and Google for information on old books. You may be surprised at what info is available but eBay also has discussion sites that will help find info on books like this. Good luck - you may have a nice "find".

This is an antique, since it is over 100 years old. It is also complete. Take it to a couple of book dealers for estimates.

I recently found a complete set of Voltaire's Oeuvres Completes, in 8 tomes. I believe it is an 1819 edition. There some damage to the bindings and some foxing on the paper, but otherwise in OK condition considering it's age. Could anyone tell me if it has any value?
