Does anyone know where to find the value of a complete set of Winston's Cumulative Loose-Leaf Encyclopedias? The set has the original advertising departments contract with hand written payment agreement to the recipient.

It was sold in 1922 to a couple in Whittier California. It also contains the coupons for 10 years of annual revision inserts.

Winston's Encyclopedias around 1918 are listed on Abe's Books for $2.99 each book. You can search Abe's Books, EBay, Craig's List, etc. for other possibilities.

Your books may have some value, allthough it appears the values are very low. Abe Books has them for about $2.50 per book. You can research further on the net or the site below.
