Value of 1887 Encyclopedia Britannica?

I have a full set of 1887 Encyclopedia Britannica, the 9th Edition. They are in good shape. Are they worth anything?

Well, the ninth was pirated widely in the US so if you have an original EB 9th edition it is worth anything between $100 to $400 depending on the condition, look on Ebay for a clue. Alternatively send me info to mrmima AT yahoo.de

The 9th edition if it's the original Adam Black edition from Edinburgh or the Charles Schribners authorized printing or Little and Brown authorized printing is worth $1000 in nice condition and maybe $400 if beat up. The pirated America versions are worth maybe $200 in nice condition. The pirated versions in beat up condition are worthless. Pirated versions are Werner, Peale, and many others. Worthless. They don't even make good firewood.
