A vintage book is a one-of-a-kind gift.
It is a timeless piece of history, an individual work of art, a beautifully bound object that is far more than mere ink upon a page.
Shopping ‘used’ is also environmentally friendly and sustainable,
recycling previously loved classics and preserving hard-to-find books for future generations.
Vintage Children's Books make great nostalgic gifts, especially rare or out-of-print books, which link someone with a long-lost literary treasure.
Collectible special interest books are a wonderful and unique gift.
From Sports, Photography, Gardening, and Art
to History, Golf, Law, and Music
there is sure to be a genre to fit everyone.
The gift of a cookbook can be a welcome reminder of your gift recipient’s heritage and family. Moments in the kitchen create our family stories and sharing meals is how many of us remember home.
When choosing a vintage, rare or collectible book, there are many details to consider. We are always happy to help you find a book that fits your needs and budget and also explain the value of a rare book.
What is the difference between an
Inscribed Book and a Signed Book?
An Inscribed Book is signed to a specific person, while a Signed Book is simply signed by the author.
What makes a First Edition valuable?
A First Edition is the first printing of a book. It is true that a First Edition may have one or more printings and that a Second Edition will normally be noted only if there are actual changes, usually major, in the text. But for a collector, a First Printing is the only true First Edition.
