Direct Sale To Us
We are happy to buy your rare books or related antiques such as presses, binding tools, or book boxes. Our offers are always very competitive, transparent, and accompanied by relevant information regarding the actual value of your book as well as informative of your range of options for selling your book(s). This is the fastest and easiest way to sell your rare book (or related antique), and clients receive payment with a matter of days.
If you want to auction your rare books, NEVER sign a contract with any auction house before you contact us! We are rare and antiquarian book specialists, and we advise people on a daily basis on the best way to sell their books. We make the auction process easier for you and make sure your rare books are auctioned specifically to an audience of rare book buyers, including our own clients.
This option is appropriate for those who have a little more time to wait in order to sell their books and prefer to take a bit more risk in order to give their books a chance to sell for fair-market value or higher. This option is always recommended for more valuable books and collections of valuable books. While there are no guarantees, on average, items sold at auction will sell for more than what dealers will offer. If consignment to auction sounds right for you, simply click here to submit your book for consignment into our rare book auctions.
We do accept consignments for select items with intrinsic values over $2,000. We list your book on the Featured page of our site along with other third party sites at a retail price. We advertise your book, and your book will gain immediate exposure to our broad client base. Terms of consignment are for one year and are subject to commissions (upon sale) or an option for us to buy the material at the end of the term (if the book does not sell) at a price agreed upon at the time of consignment. This choice is appropriate for those who are willing to take the risk of waiting for a retail price within one year and are also willing to sell the item at a reduced price at the end of the term if the items fails to sell at retail.
