Selling to Us

Offer Us Early Books

You can use the form at the bottom of this page to offer us any pre-1830 antiquarian book that you are thinking of selling.

We are always keen to add to our stock, with particular focus on English STC books (pre-1640), continental books printed up to the mid-1600s and early manuscripts both decorative and textual. We acquire works in all languages and on all subjects. We are always interested in collections of later items, and sometimes purchase individual later books. We are particularly eager to acquire fine, complete copies in contemporary bindings.

If you are thinking of disposing of such items, please either fill in the form below, contact us by telephone or email, or visit our shop in London. We are always pleased to consider offers, and will give as much help and advice as we can if your books are not for us. This is always provided free of charge and with no obligation on your part. Naturally, our discretion is assured.

If you would like to offer us a book, we ask that you kindly complete the form below, including as much information about the text in the ‘description’ field as possible, and (if possible) uploading a few photos of your book (including the binding, title-page, and any salient defects). We will then get back to you by email once we have reviewed your book.
