We specialize in old and rare books, specifically early printed books before 1800 including incunabula, early Bibles (pre-1800), manuscripts, archives, natural history books, color plate books, books on travel and exploration and much more. We also buy and sell the unusual and the curious- especially things we find intellectually intriguing or have a great story to tell.
Our evaluations are based on years of experience buying and selling rare books and manuscripts to many clients. We rely on common pricing resources such as the American Book Prices Database and other price reference tools. We cannot offer legal appraisals, but we do find people appreciate our assistance and provide comparable actual sales records whenever possible. There is never a charge for our advice or evaluations.
We travel nationwide to purchase interesting libraries. It is very helpful if you can provide quality photos of the books on the shelves as a first step in our evaluation. For fine individual books and smaller collections, we are also happy to provide you with our company insured Fedex account for reverse charge (upon request). For collections that do not match our interests or needs, we always try to provide recommendations of other reputable dealers, auction houses or other venues.
