For the past 30 years, we have been dealers in antiquarian books in New York City. We work with a large number of important collectors worldwide,  rare book libraries, and other institutions, and therefore can offer you immediate payment for your books. Please check out our main blog at RareBookBuyer.com.

We also offer free estimates for your rare books (within reason) and are happy to supply recent auction records  (“American Book Prices Current ” auction records)  or other online price information services pertaining to your book.

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


We are especially interested in older and antiquarian material (pre-1800), fine bindings, sets of books, illustrated works, limited edition, fine press books, signed books, illuminated and text manuscripts.  We also actively purchase scholarly books in all academic fields as well as libraries.

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.
