Value of 1768 Encyclopedia Britannica?

I have a full set, printed in 1966 in the USA. Dedicated by permission to Lyndon B Johnson and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
It comes with the original book stand. Also comes with reference book. All are in very good condition and leather bound.

Even though the book is from 1768 it is still reproduced and reprinted in 1966. Therefore, this makes the books less valuable. If you had the originals from 1768 then you'd have a very rare set of books on your hands. As it stands now these books are not worth much at all. Any set of books 100+ years old brings in a good price as long as the books are in good condition. You might try contacting an auction house to find out if they could give you a good price on these books. Unfortunately, I don't think they can.
