You can try this site (http://www.abebooks.com/books/first-printing-collectible-modern-books/first-editions.shtml) to get an idea of the books' value and perhaps find a buyer.

Because it always interests me to see what old books might be worth, I looked these up on Abebooks.

You may be lucky to get more than fifty bucks for the Lee Child (http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=child&bi=0&bx=off&ds=30&fe=on&recentlyadded=all&sgnd=on&sortby=17&sts=t&tn=tripwire&x=88&y=6), esp with no DJ.

Depending on condition, the Campbell (http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=campbell&bi=0&bx=off&ds=30&fe=on&recentlyadded=all&sortby=17&sts=t&tn=alcatraz&x=76&y=10) might be worth as much as a couple of hundred.

Looks like first editions of the Fleming (http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=fleming&bi=0&bx=off&ds=30&fe=on&recentlyadded=all&sortby=17&sts=t&tn=chitty&x=61&y=13)abound; look for the closest match to yours.

I was tempted also when I went there to copy the site's link for my earlier post but was too lazy to look up their values. Glad you did, though, and I'm sure the OP will appreciate your efforts.
