Value of Encyclopedia Britannica?

I have several volumes of an eighth edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Can anyone tell me what the value of them maybe? Please send info as soon as possible as they are headed for the trash.

First I would question about the edition as the eighth edition was published in 1852 to 1860 and had 21 volumes.
Be sure you are looking at the cover page that shows the year published.
Condition is a big part of value and also type of cover.
There are sellers who list individual volumes but the asking price is usually $4-$10 and these may take a long time to sell. Sometimes craft people will buy an edition if it has a lot of illustrations but this is rare. Many sellers list books like this and just leave them listed for months/years and some never sell.
If you decide to try your hand at selling you will need several pictures and maybe list them on local sites like Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, LetGo or others and start price at $10 with best offer and see if they sell before you ditch them.

A lot of work? for a small amount of money and maybe sell one book every 3 months?
Your decision about that.
