Do you mean a set (how many books?) or one book (volume 5?)
One book sells for 5.00 on eBay but may take months/years to sell.
If you mean a set of books then please explain and state what year and condition.

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.

Most of these old encyclopedias have little to no value. Financially speaking, you would be better off donating it and taking the tax deduction.
