Value of Standard American Encyclopedia Set

I am not finding this particular set either on eBay or elsewhere. Do you know what year these would be? The value?

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.

Have a complete set of 1960 Encyclopedia Americana and yearly updates to and including 1966. Is there a market for them and if so can you suggest a contact. Thank you

All publish books have a copyright date on the front couple of pages it's that easy to find out

The copyright or edition should list a year. My parents had a set from the mid 1930s. Not sure if there is any resale value but it sure is interesting to read an encyclopedia that pre-dates WWII.
