Hi timsgirl,

I'll answer assuming that you have US 2nd edition sets (since Khamul did an excellent job answering if you have the UK set).

Are these the Orange/Red/Purple dustjacketed sets pictured below?

If they are first impressions (have a full number line "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1" on the copyright page) then they can have reasonable value - a few hundred dollars for VG/VG shape. They have a significant chance of being later impressions, or book club editions (no price on the dustjacket, no number line on the copyright page) in which case they don't have significant value - there are uncountable numbers of those available on the market at any given time.

If you want more information, send me some pics of the books and copyright pages and we can tell you what you have.
