Lots of interesting stamps! It's a little hard to see the stamps, since so many pics were combined into a single pic. With stamps, the details are often everything.
However, based on what I can see, it looks like you have a nice beginner's collection. I see stamp packets and album pages from a Spanish dealer/manufacturer (can't tell which), as well as stamps mounted on homemade pages, and also stamps still on paper (presumably from incoming mail).
Looks like your grandfather did a good job of sorting/mounting stamps based on country.
Most of the stamps I see are minimum or near-minimum catalog value stamps, and then some that probably catalog in the $1-$2 range. Essentially, common stamps. There's not enough resolution in the picture for me to spot any premium stamps. It looks like a collection built up mostly from stamp packets, which means it is unlikely you will find any premium stamps.
But the real value of stamps is in the enjoyment and learning! I hope you will consider building up on your grandfather's stamp collection, as it is a very nice start!
If you have any questions about any particular stamp, please post a pic of that specific stamp or group of stamps. You can also check your local library to see if they have any stamp catalogs (Scott, Stanley Gibbons, Michel...). You will find the stamp catalogs to be a useful reference, even if the prices listed in the catalog tend to be unrealistically high.
