You might want to clarify which of these are reprints.

Yes- I will do that- just moved so will have time to look now- thanks for letting me know about this. Deb

It's not possible to tell for certain if the 1903 is a reprint, but if you look at the first two photos they say REPRINT on the bottom of the cover just below Washington, DC.

I have followed your advice and find that the early volumes with red covers, 1888-1907 are reprints and from 1914 on are original. Again Missing volume 5 and 9-13, for those early years. 

Do you know  how I can obtain a value for this set?  I would like to sell them, if possible? Thanks Deb


I found this guide to be of great value:

Volumes 1888 to 1907 are red cover reprints, volumes 1914 on are original. Any idea as to price for these 76 volumes or where to sell them. i am open to offers.

I think you are in the right place with the Collector's Corner. The only other option I am aware of is eBay. Listing, figuring out postage, and actually shipping them sounds like a hassle to me. Maybe other members know of other options I haven't considered.

Hi Mark, I do appreciate all your information to date. I plan to move soon and would like to sell this collection of 75hardbound volumes. What price do you think I should ask for the collection that might be attractive to someone? thanks Deb

First, I would suggest relisting your original post. Several new posts have appeared in the past few days and it appears yours has dropped off of current listings. It sounds like you have a neat set. The problem is everyone is fleeing from the printed medium, so the market for print material is very thin now. Your best bet is to contact the dealers in the upper left corner of the main page for the Collector's Corner and see who responds.

Good luck!
