We Buy Books
We are always interested in buying good books, and are always interested in looking at individual books as well as entire libraries. What we're looking for, primarily, are hardback first editions, with both the book and the dust jacket in excellent condition. This is especially true of literature, art, philosophy, and photography books. But we are also interested in what we consider to be quality books of all kinds, regardless of edition--though the condition of a book is always important.
We pay fair prices for your books. We are happy to explain to you why we are offering the amount we will pay for the books you are offering us.
