If you have the whole series, they're probably worth quite a bit. If some are missing, the price goes down, but even individual books are often worth a lot to a collector that's missing one from their set.

We have a good rare book place in the next town over. You might check and see whether you do, too. And there's always ABE books.

Please, whatever you do, don't toss them. There are still whole worlds inside those books for someone to read.

I am trying to determine what old junk I have is really worth something or
not.  Been cleaning out very old boxes I got from who knows where....

Old books:
These are hardcovered childrens stories- From Fairy tales to Heidi and all the classics, obviously sold as a series. They are in great condition although yellowed from age. Probably from the 30's or 40's. Didn't really see a date,
although copywrited 1917 , but I am sure it isn't that old.

I did a search on Heidi and my books look similiar to the ones they claim are
from 1925.  unfortunately they don't seem to have any bids...

So- do I keep them, toss them, are they worth anything?
