Thank you for the question! It would be my pleasure to assist you.
The market for old textbooks is rather limited and one where supply exceeds demand. White's text on Chromosomes sells at the $8 to $15 level, typically: see: http://www.biblio.com/book/chromosomes-methuens-monographs-biological-subjects-white/d/328674220?aid=vialibri&t=1 and Elton's Ecology of Animals sells at similar price levels, see also: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=13146225535
The third book on Sex Determination is a bit more, at the $15 to $25 level, typically (there are numerous variants of all of these books, but nearly all are common, see finally, http://www.antiquariat.de/?i=VI25908444_VI
