Hi Karrie,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

This is a desirable set of books. In very good condition, the current retail (replacement or insurance) value of the set is approximately $300. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount, or $120.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Karrie.

If you have any further questions or problems concerning your answer, please let me know.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.

I need your positive rating! Could you very kindly rate my services (with the stars or "accept" button) as this is how I get paid by JustAnswer, at no extra cost to you. We can still continue to communicate here on this thread after you do.

Thank you so much!

Do you still feel a phone call is necessary?

Karrie,

Your series was published in 1909, which is a later edition. Biblio is selling the 1909 Ayshire Editon de Luxe. No. 295 of 1,000 for $250.
