The 1905-1906 Harmsworth Encyclopedia set only has 8 volumes but you say you have 10 books.
There are several different editions with the name Harmsworth that you have to careful when doing research:
Harmsworth - Business...
Harmsworth - Home Doctor....
Harmsworth - Household...
Harmsworth - Wireless...
But the biggest edition listed is the Harmsworth's Universal Encyclopedia.

I cannot find any evidence of current value for this set.
It appears that doing research shows that most books/sets are listed for sale in the UK (that may be where you are located?) but only one set has sold over the past several months. and that was sold for $18 plus shipping.


Sellers who list this type of books usually post them and they may not sell for years or even sell at all.
You could try your hand at posting your set but be sure to show very good pictures and description of condition.
Start at any price - $150? plus Media shipping (books) and reduce it if no one shows an interest. You might also make it 'make an offer' to see if someone bites.
You can also think about posting it on local venues for 'pick up only'. Maybe on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, etc.

Depends on the condition of your set, on Ebay this set is being offered at $25 to $75. You could do a auction/ bid for a better price for your set!
