We especially want to add books in the categories that comprise less than 5% of the total.

The books that we value the most are hardcover, with dust jackets, with no markings and slight or no damage.

We realize that the books we are offered often don't match these preferences.

The factor that most distinguishes the books we want to buy is that those books have value. If similar books are being sold for a dollar or less on the internet, we won't be very interested.

Call or email us if you want to ask about your collection. There's never any obligation...and you might be surprised at the value they have.
