    You certainly won't be able to get any factual answers here, nobody can value a book without seeing it because the condition of the book is vital in assessing its worth. If you want my opinion however, I would say it is worth no more than $25 and probably closer to $10-15. Your book is a reproduction, not an original and is also part of a set, not an individual volume so it is worth very little even in excellent condition. If it is missing it's jacket or otherwise damaged in any way it will be worth next to nothing.

    Here are some listings on ABE.com for your book, it should give you an idea of what it is going for. Bear in mind though that if you sold the book you would typically only receive 5-20% of the selling value from a dealer.

    Hope that answers your question. Cheers.
