This is a wonderful collection and I'm sure very beautiful. Unfortunately, this isn't worth much at all.All the information in these books is readily available online and the set is not +100 years old. Therefore, there is not much of a resale value on these books.

You might be able to find a crafter in your area that would be interested in the book for the pictures they have inside. Other than this you can't donate them to a school, library or even a donation center. They have way too many and most of the time they send of them off to a paper recycle center to get rid of them. You can try to list them on Craig's list, but I fear the most you can ask for them is $40 to $50.

How old is the set? If it is approaching 100 years old it has value. Take it to a few book dealers.
