Value of The Children's Encyclopedia

I have a copy of The Children's Encyclopedia by Arthur Mee, volumes 1 to 10. They are in excellent condition. I would just like some information on this set, as well as, if they are worth anything.

Most books of this type have very little value, but if I were you I would take them to several book dealers and get their take on it.

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.

I believe DCA gave an excellent answer.

It seems strange that most books offered for sale on eBay or Amazon are not in the US but being offered from the UK.

Here is one site showing what is currently listed (not sold) (1/13/2017):

I have the original 1910 set which was only a set of 8. I have researched a lot and can't find a price above about £50 I would suggest that a later set would be even less as there are lots of those on sale at ABE Books and on e-bay
