The 1st book Collected poems sells online for $110.

Your 2nd book Plain Tales is $30

3rd book Anthology of Modern Verse is $65

4th book Golden Bough is one of a two book series. If you had both books, I see them for sale at $3000 for the set.

5th Walter De la Mere is $35.

I just went ahead and did all of them for you since you were patient about the process.

Thank you very much for this - do you have any advice as to where the best place to sell them is?
Expert:  Julie replied 3 months ago.

Ebay would give you your best shot at competitive bidding on these books. You could try locally on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace as well. Or, you could contact a local auctioneer who would sell them for you.
