As they say, selling price is what people will pay. However, not everybody had a chance to buy them, and there is a certain element of fun to having the Unseen Library name. If you describe them well on eBay, they might go for much more than predicted. I'd advise emphasizing the (near) perfect condition, gold decoration, and out-of-print-collectible elements. It's very important to have lots of good photographs. Give details, explain abbreviations like BCA, and above all, don't lie; the truth well-presented is far more effective. If you have trouble with spelling, have someone who knows go over the text for you or at least use a dictionary. Be sure to fix missing capital letters (such as "pratchett" and "discworld" above in your post). Complete sentences help - "wanted to sell" what? Sure, I assume it's the books you wanted to sell, but it could be that you wanted to sell some else you own so you can afford to keep the books. There is no Discworld novel titled Unseen LIbrary, but I thought at first that was what you intended to say. It would be clearer to write "The books are from the collectible Unseen Library fine editions of Discworld novels." Please note, this is not a flame, this is advice. I know how I react to badly-written eBay offers, and I don't think you want that response.
