Hello Heather,
To view the answer, you will need to be logged into the web site from your computer. you cannot respond or send messages to the expert via emails.
The Lloyds Encyclopaedic Dictionary. v c l il CABL-DEST 7 Voume set has an estimated value on the secondary retail market for an of average of 288.294 -320.00 GBP depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in a Vintage Book Store or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally. As Antique Books, bare subject in selling price to different areas across the country. Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities.
If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great!

Keep in mind if you sell to a dealer or antique or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
If you have any further questions or problem about your answer, please reply to me before deciding to leave a negative rating, which does effect my job.
