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.

Go on eBay, Craigslist, Etsy, Amazon and look up what others are paying. Some collector would be the best cuz they'll pay the most

The bad news is that old books, unless first editions, usually have little to no value. You could take it to a bookseller to be sure, but I think you will be disappointed.

Are you saying you have a 20 volume set? But you are asking about an Imperial Encyclopedic dictionary - so is it a set of encyclopedias?

I have not heard of these and there does not seem to be any information available on a set - just a newer dictionary.

You will have to do the research on line - start with Google and maybe you can find something relating to your books. Be sure you have the correct date (last publication date).
