Appraisals

If you've come into our store, you know that we are generous with our expertise and love to talk about your treasures with you. We're happy to help you learn about rare books anytime, but sometimes something more official is required. That's where our appraisal services come in. 

We have over 40 years of combined experience dealing with rare and collectible material. Our history includes large antiquarian collections as well as oddball contemporary work such as zines, posters, and artist's books. We have seen it all, and love assessing uncommon material.

Our services are $250 a day for a professional out-appointment appraisal. We can also offer a letter for single items in-shop. This service is $50 per item. Larger collections that take longer are $250 a day as well, although we aim to be expedient, though accurate. We provide all relevant documentation for insurance, donation, and tax purposes.

Please do contact us with any questions. We are happy to discuss your situation.
