    I got hold of two old books of chess:

    1- Chess for Fun & Chess for Blood
    by Edward Lasker

    2- The Golden Treasury of Chess
    by Frank J. Marshall

    will these books be helpful in improving my game?

    Most chess books are helpful but it really depends on your chess strength. I never heard of either of those books.

    You can check out my Need Help threads. I posted some links there to websites I have used and like and those will help you.

    "Chess for Fun and Chess for Blood" by Edward Lasker is a lot of fun but not extremely instructional.

    "The Golden Treasury of Chess" that I am familiar with was written by Reuben Fine, I believe. Maybe Marshall published the original edition, and it was updated by Fine.
