I found a Ysgarth set of books.  There are 6 of them, all yellow, including the Last Song of Hergest.  No box, just wrapped in a blue flyer in a rubberband that says "The Ysgarth Rule System".  
Is this 1st edition?
How much is it probably worth?

No it isn't a first edition.  These are the 4th edition (maybe 3rd?) probably copyright around 1982.

Their price fluctuates wildly depending on the time - a good estimate is between $50 and $100.

Blue flyer rather than the usual red wrap on the following auction and per ToT?

2 of those 3 sale photos unhelpfully migrated; here's the other one. "Extras" in that auction but still a strong price, I thought.

At $40 each extra supplement, that's still $100 for the core set.

Or ~$140 + $25-30 per supplement? Take your pick. :)
Either seemed strong and "fluctuating wildly", as you said, vs. the $40-50 the core books have gone for in the past, albeit the wraparound isn't always present.

(Nice Kobold Hall, btw ;))

Yes, the supplements are probably more of a toss up $25-$50.  Adventures can do much better, $30 - $100 depending on the print and if it is a later one.

I'm not convinced all sets have a wrap around either - was probably an after thought to include one.

Surprisingly my first KH - finally decided I should finish that set off.  The price of those seem fairly stable.
