The 11th Edition published in 1910-1911 is popular with collectors but condition and type of cover has a big impact on value.

  • The 11th Edition is available free to view over the Internet and of course free to download and print any part so for the average person/student this is how they would use it.
  • This edition is also available on DVD for only a few dollars so this makes it a set mainly for collectors.
  • As to value, the asking prices range from $110 to several thousand dollars so you would have to determine where your set fits in those categories.
  • Several sets are listed on Amazon but more are listed on eBay so you can review those sites to review the sets descriptions and the ASKING price.

  • Asking prices are just that and does not always reflex the true value as the value is only what someone will pay. Some of these sets may have been listed on these sites (or both sites) for over a year and some will never sell. Sellers just list the books and hope that someone will one day pay what they are asking.
  • Here are links to books presently listed/posted on eBay and Amazon:
  • Here is a link to books listed or sold on eBay over the past several months - sold books are shown in green numbers:
  • Shipping is always a problem so many sellers will list their sets as "pick up only" which just means they are available to buyers in their area/city.

  • You can check these sites in the future to see if there are any changes or sales.

From what I have seen on eBay, it is in the $250 range.
