Rare Book Auctioneers

A Reference Guide

More Information
Book auctions seem to be enjoying something of a renaissance at the moment. At the time of writing, prices achieved are buoyant and there is an impressive number of rare and collectable first editions being catalogued.
The advent of the internet has made them more accessible, not only in terms of bidding but access to online catalogues.

There are, of course, auctioneers all over the country, many of whom have large and regular lots of books. Viewing sales in your vicinity is only to be encouraged if you are in the market to buy. Bargains and 'sleepers' being enticement.
They can also provide a good outlet for those looking to sell. If you are looking to dispose of a rare and valuable item then we would recommend using to bigger players. Not only are your guarantees better but also, given the reach and client lists, you are more likely to achieve a better final price.

If you are looking to buy or sell books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
