Value of 1829 Americana Encyclopedias?

I believe that I have the whole set of Americana encyclopedias, they are in great condition and the year they were made in, is 1829. Are they worth anything?

Encyclopedia sets that date before 1923 may have some value if they are complete and in good condition. You can check on online and on EBay, antique book collectors in your area or online etc.

Anything over 100 years old is an antique, and may be valuable. Take these to several dealers, and see what they say.

If your set is truly a set from 1829 in great condition then you may have a fairly valuable set. Many people ask questions here and later find out they did not read the correct publishing date (that would be the last/latest date listed) but you may be lucky and have a nice set. If it is an 1829 set then you probably will not find a set for sale on auction sites.

There are some book sites that will give you an estimated value but they usually charge a fee and you would need good photos.

Here is a link you might find interesting.
