Value of Odhams Encyclopedia Set

I am trying to sell set of 12 Odhams encyclopedias in a teak display case. They are in excellent condition; they have never been used. I also have the New Illustration Atlas of the World. It is over 50 years old. How do I find their value and where can I sell them?

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 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, Craigslist and other retail sites for possibilities. Everything is now online and updated constantly so old books are just that-old.
