Buying Policy & Valuations. Books, Paintings, Original Signed Artwork, Prints & Engravings. Book related objects....book illustrations, bookends, bookcases, bookstands.......
Above our Shop Plan on two floors
We require for purchase all types of books, from paperbacks to complete libraries. We are particularly interested in purchasing specialist collection on any topic. Our aim is to give an absolutely fair offer, based on the resale values we can achieve in our high street shop.
Alternatively, we are happy to give you our valuation on a rare book, or a rare book collection. You can do this by email, telephone, or letter, but far and away the best thing is to bring the book, or books, in. This is free service. We try and get back to you in two or three days.
