We’ve been dealing in antiquarian (pre-1800) books for more than 30 years. Working with a sizeable number of important book dealers and collectors worldwide,  rare book libraries, and other institutions, we can offer immediate and premium payment for your books. Please check out our main blog at RareBookBuyer.com

We can additionally offer free estimates for your old and rare books (within reason) and are happy to supply realized auction records  (“American Book Prices Current ” auction records)  or other online price information services when relevant.

Please contact us at: WeBuyRareBooks@gmail.com or at (646) 469-1851. We are located in Midtown Manhattan (by appointment only) at 1510 Lexington Avenue.


We are particularly interested in antiquarian material, book bindings and sets, significant illustrated works, limited edition, fine press books, signed books, illuminated and text manuscripts. We also seek out scholarly books in all fields and entire libraries.

Any relevant descriptions and/or photos certainly will be helpful in our immediate evaluation. Please note that we are not a legal appraisal service, and when we make an offer to purchase books, that it cannot be considered an appraisal.  You will find us in any case to be honest and straightforward, and I am sure, very helpful.
