I too got hold of a nice first edition boxset (1961: 11th; 8th; 8th imp.), back in May. All three volumes are in NF state, with only a little darkening to DJ spines to speak of. The slipcase was also VG or better. I paid £250, including postage (which probably cost the seller about £10). I think most people would expect to pay between ~£200 (if you were lucky, or if the condition wasn't ideal) & £400. I wouldn't personally pay £400+. But if it was an early set & in superb condition I'm sure you could see higher. Of course this is all eBay prices I'm talking about.

So £350 sounds like a decent price.
