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".
They dont seem to be worth more than $25 according to this source. www.abebooks.com/
This is a book that is slightly damaged and not in good condition. A book in good condition would sell for $25 used. You might be able to get around $15 for yours.
Thank you for your commenr. Fully understand.
There are many variables because of first edition, first book club edition, etc. so if you can match your book to one of the exact books that have SOLD (not asking prices, but actual SOLD prices on eBay) you can see the value in today's market:
If it matches one of the ones that had a best offer accepted, please let me know and I can tell you what they actually got.
That yours has some flaws will take 20-30% off of a sold value (meaning you can expect to get 20-30 percent less than the value that matches yours.
Let me know if I can help further.

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?
