    Go to Abebooks.com and do a search on there. You should be able to get an idea about what they are selling for across the country. Also you might be able to find the missing volume also.

    Personally as a Mason, I'd keep them!

    I have seen good quality originals available on Amazon.com for up to $600 per book. I picked up my gently "loved" two volume set for $45, and I use them almost weekly.

    lol I can take some pictures and let you read them online for free jacob :p

    I would love to keep this set and they are in amazing condition. But my father is in need of money at the moment. If there are any offers, let me know. I will be willing to part with these. If you are in need of more pictures i will be happy to do so. Doing so on this site i would know they would go to someone that would take care of them and use them.

    The 2-volume set is Mackey's Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. Generally in the range of $150-$250 (depending on condition) for the set.

    The 7-volume set is Mackey's Revised History of Freemasonry, and significantly more expensive. I have seen sets sell for nearly $1000, and one that was brand new for a bit more.

    Love the comment Bro. Jacob: "If you want to find out what they are worth, i'd read 'em :)"

    I concur.
