If you are interested in learning the value of your rare books, I made a couple instructional videos that are on Youtube that explain what to look for as well as some rare book pricing databases. If you have any rare books you need me to look at or have specific questions about (yes, I know it gets complicated!), feel free to send photos to WeBuyRareBooks@gmail.com or by text to 646-469-1851.
I made a short video on things that are missing from some Rare Books and what we can learn from them. I will discuss excised pages, expurgated, and defaced books etc. Many books that are incomplete or damaged are often passed over with little thought, but it is always good to ask if there is any hidden reason, motivation or history behind the loss.
I am often asked as a rare book dealer to value old vellum or parchment deeds. These manuscripts were handwritten on durable material so they survive in abundance. Many are quite common and the subject matter can be a trifle dull. On the positive side, that means they can often be overlooked at flea markets, online, and at auctions and careful readings often make for exciting discoveries and reveal some to be important documents that yield interesting social, economic, and geographic insights. Below I will value a very interesting NYC deed dated shortly before the American Revolution.
If you have any deeds or old manuscripts, and want a free evaluation, don’t hesitate to contact my by text at 6464691851 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
