Some of these sets can still sell but they are very slow movers and sellers usually have to relist these for months/years.
These sets are also very difficult to ship so you may want to start with a listing on Craigslist and maybe you will be lucky and find a buyer.
eBay is a good place to try and determine the value of sets like this. Here is what is currently listed on eBay:

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.
