Selling books - individually or as a collection?

I have a large number of Star Wars books, mostly lovely hardback "making of" books that I've collected over the years. I never look at them now and am wanting to sell them. I am torn between selling them individually or as a collection, probably on eBay.

The latter would be good for someone wanting an "instant" collection, but I suspect I'll get less for them overall, but it would less hassle.

Does anyone have any experience / recommendations?

Thanks

Watch out for postage, easy to get stung with books. you could try Amazon Marketplace, in fact it's worth checking on amazon what the going rate for each title is, if people are doing penny sales on them. Your find it hard to shift them online.

Books are a pain to sell unless it's something rare and very collectable. As dataloss mentioned postage kills any deal.

I suspected that might be a problem, especially so in this case as they're big heavy books
