In general, I only assess one item or matched set per question. Since you were not aware, I will make an exception here.

Your undated (circa 1930) Anna Karenina by Tolstoy that was published by Grosset & Dunlap has a high retail value of $30 - $35 on today's market.

Coniston by Churchill from 1906 has a high retail value of $450 - $550 if it has the original dustjacket. If dustjacket not included, the high value is $100 - $135.

Your version of The Arabian Knights that was published by ***** ***** in New York has a high retail value of $200 - $300.
