Is this your set?

It sold on ebay (NOT asking price, but someone paid) $75 for it! That is a nice tidy sum!!


If you are comfortble selling on eBay and packing and shipping something this heavy, it would get you the most exposure.

I can almost guaraantee you that you would not get that much in a local venue sale--like Facebook or Craig's list.

Be sure to pack and weigh and put the exact box size and weight (eBay advanced seller tool) if you go that route. It can go Media Mail (if you are in the US) which will cost less than any other shipping method.

Buyer usually pays shipping. If you offer "free" shipping that means YOU pay it, so be sure to add that cost to the asking price.

I would put it on for a good until cancelled auction with a best offer feature so someone an make an offer.

Post back how it goes!

If one book is what you are asking about then it would be of very little value and even if listed for under $10 may never sell..

  • If it is a set you are asking about then you would need to give more information about the set. Such as year of publication, number of volumes, type/color of cover, condition and you can do your research with that information.

  • Check eBay for listings but remember that for sale listings show the asking price that a seller "hopes" to get and rarely has anything to do with true value.
  • Here are listing presently shown on eBay with sellers "asking" prices.
  • Here is what has recently sold on eBay so you can check to see if anything like your set has sold.
  • There are other places to check but eBay is the largest selling site for books.
