This appears to be a reprint of the first Britannica encyclopedia, which was published in 1771 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The following website provides more detail: www.britannica.com/.../Encyclopaedia-Britannica-English...

This 3 volume (you have one volume - #II) set was published in 1977 as a commemorative of the original set.
These sets are not rare and having only one volume I'm not sure it would be valued at more than $20 and it may take a long time to sell.

You can read some answers on this subject from previous questions:

Here is a set that has been listed for a long time and has not sold. Asking price: $63 has useful information about the set.

Maybe this link can help with the value, during this currant market , these books only appeal to a certain collector/buyer. Often this collection is offered at auction/bid pricing. maybe this link can help - www.antiquers.com/forums

Unless it is over 100 years old, it has negligible value. You are better off financially donating it and taking a tax deduction.
