I have two 1877 Appleton's Condensed American Cyclopedia books, in good condition for their age. I was wondering if they had any value?
The books may have some value, depending upon condition. You can research online and with book collectors and sellers, EBay, Craig's List, etc. Also check this site for possible information:

We have a full set of 12 of the Appleton Universal Cyclopaedia and Atlas reference books published in 1903, a newly revised and enlarged edition. The original series has a copyright of 1874. It is in very good condition, very little use.The volumes include many original engravings. They have been in our family since the late '30s. Is there a market for these, or anyone who collects? What might their value be?
Since it is over 100 years old and complete, it has value. Take it to several book dealers for appraisals

Hello. I have the complete set of The Book of Knowledge, not dated, but believed to be 1935. This is a UK Encyclopaedia with differing editions into the 1950's - '60. Book shops can sell the complete set for about 25 GBP / 32.80 USD.
I have the whole set; are they valuable?
I am looking for the value of an 1874 Appleton's Encyclopedia Vol IX HOR-KIN. I only have the one book, but it's in beautiful condition.

I have recently acquired a 12 volume set of these books, with a publish date of 1902 and copyright date of 1901. I planned on reading them, but after finding no info about them, I am wondering just how common this set is. They are leather bound, black and burgundy in colour.
