Are these books worth anything?

I am having a clear out and have across a pile of old books owned by my Dad as a child which he gave to me when I was young.

They are still in good condition though a little worn and very very un-PC but I am wondering whether to sell them or just give them to the charity shop

They are as follows:-

Treasure Island - The Story of the Film (1952)
The Gilbert Harding Question Book (1957)
Prattles - Not sure of the year but has a sticker inside saying it was presented as a Sunday School Prize in 1916
The Boy who dreamed dreams and other Old Testament stories - Lucy Diamond (no year)
Daily Mail Annual for Girls and Boys - Susan French (1956)
My Book of Favourite Tales (1950)
My Book of Fairytales and Fables (approx 1954)
The Cruise of the Clipper - Morgan Derham (1952)
Biggles of the Camel Squadron - Capt W E Jones (1934)

Could be worth a bit....maybe try selling them on Ebay and if it does well, you could donate the money to the charity shop. :thumbsup:

Wow, that's amazing......I bet you're glad that you didn't give it to charity now. :giggle:

Sounds like you could have a nice little goldmine sitting there. :)

P.S Some of these books are actually older than you. :w00t:

Hmmm....although it sounds like both comparisons are used....1 sounds like it's in peak condition. :thumbsup:

P.S Are you sure they're all older than you, as some are as recent as 1957? :giggle:

Check the edition. A 1st edition will usually be worth more, sometimes a lot more. 2nd, 3rd etc editions can be published in the same year and have next to no value.

Arent we all lol?

I agree with others though Fire - 1st editions are always going to be worth more. The Biggles books are quite sought after.
