We have been dealers in old, rare, and antiquarian books for more than 30 years. We work with a large number of important collectors, universities worldwide,  rare book libraries, and other institutions.  We can offer you immediate and premium payment for your books. Please check out our main blog at RareBookBuyer.com for more information.

We can also provide you with free estimates for your rare books (within reason) and are happy to provide you with auction records  (“American Book Prices Current ” auction records)  or other online price information services where relevant.

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


We are mainly interested in pre-1800 material, fine bindings and sets, important illustrated works, first and limited edition books, fine press books, signed books, illuminated books and text manuscripts.  We also actively purchase entire libraries and scholarly books in all fields.

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 a 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.
