I have several old books, which include : Awful disclosures

Customer Question

I have several old books, which include :
Awful disclosures of Maria Monk,with picture of the confessional inside, dark reddish coloured outer with title in gold. The pages are yellowing, and i can't find a date on it.
Also have The National Encyclopedia, which consists of 13 volumes, with a brown leather looking outer, with gold writing,and cost twelve shilling each,the pages are in pretty good condition, and print by William Mackenzie, 69 Ludgate Hill.
Then I have The romance of nature, which is covered in blue, and edited be Francis Pitt, and I have four volumes, pages are in good nick.
Last of all is four volumes of the world of children, green covering with children and glibe etched on front, pages are yellowing slightly, and was republished in1950.
The reason for me wanting to value these books, is I am down sizing and was going to give/ throw them away, but maybe, I would be able to sell to a collector.
