Summer Clearance Sale
The largest sale in Worldwide Books history will be starting soon! In early June, we will be offering discounts starting at 30% on every in-stock title in our inventory published before 2017. More than 30,000 museum publications and trade monographs on art, architecture, photography and design will be offered for the first time at wholesale prices, including many scarce and out-of-print titles.
Our active backlist includes thousands of exhibition catalogues published since the 1960s, many of which were never commercially distributed in the U.S. All of our books are "new," not used copies;some titles may be slightly shelf-worn, especially those from the 1960s and 70s, but none have serious defects unless specifically noted in our record.
Quantities are extremely limited. For more than half the titles being offered, we have only one copy remaining in stock, so you may wish to search our holdings through our website before the sale starts. We are offering subscribers to our e-Newsletter the special privilege of selecting and purchasing sale items at the discounted price in advance of the sale; simply enter "Summer Sale" in the Special instructions/Comments box of the website's checkout page, and the 30% discount will be applied to your order when it is processed. If you are unable to be invoiced before the start of the fiscal year beginning July 1, we will be glad to hold your selections on reserve for you until then.
On the Advanced Search page of our website, enter "<2017" in the publication date field to limit your search to sale items. In the Print Status box below the pull-down menus, uncheck the small boxes labeled "Include TOS/OSI titles" and "Include OP titles" to limit the search to in-stock titles.
When searching through the Advanced Search page, multiple filters (artistic medium, period, countryor region represented, language of text, etc.) can be applied simultaneously to further limit and refine search results.
Note: Searches retrieve a maximum of 2,000 matching titles per search; for very broad searches that would find more than 2,000 matching records (e.g., "Photography"), users will want to refine their searches by applying additional filters (e.g., period, country represented, language of the text, etc.) and/or conduct the search as a series of mutually exclusive searches based on date of publication (e.g., first search ">1960 <2010" in the YEAR OF PUBLICATION FIELD; second search ">2009 <2019").
Keyword searches, partial string searches (use an "*" as a wildcard character) and exact-phrase searches (put the phrase in quotation marks) can be conducted through the title and publisher field. For more details on how to use our Advanced Search page, click here.

The sale applies to in-stock items published before 2017.
Use "<2017" (less than 2017) in the "Year of publication" field and be sure to uncheck the boxes under "Print status".
Use any combination of keywords to narrow down your search results to less than 2,000.
