I have a full set of the 1924 World Book encyclopedia. I am wondering if they are worth anything to sell. I feel bad because they are just sitting in my living room.

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, dictionaries and reference books 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, Craigs List and other retail sites for possibilities. Everything is now online and updated constantly so old books are just that-old.

I have a set that are in pretty good condition from what I know. Can anyone tell me what these may be worth and where I might be able to sell them?

I have a set of 1924 Work Book Encyclopedias minus the 4th book. What are they worth?
I also have two volumes of the World at War 1916. They were copyrighted in 1921.
