If they are over 100 years old they are worth something. Take them to book dealers for appraisals. They are not worth much otherwise.

I have a two volume set of the 1941 unabridged dictionary, 2,970 pages, with illustrations. Does anyone know the possible value if any? They are in great condition.

Many people have old books they think are valuable and would like to sell. Most old dictionaries, references etc., have very little value-a few dollars at most. Encyclopedias dated after 1923 are essentially worthless but crafters may be interested for the old pictures.


Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc., receive donations of tons of old encyclopedias but send them to recycling centers or dumps as they cannot use or sell them.

You can check online for old book collectors, on EBay, Craigslist and other retail sites for possibilities. Everything is now online and updated constantly so old books are just that-old.
