National Book Auctions to work for you ...
we work with consignments of all sizes, we excel in handling
large collections ranging from hundreds of books up to entire
libraries. Our researching and cataloging methods deliver
exceptional returns for collections by creating small, individual
lots from larger inventories. Collections of all sizes are
divided into themed lots containing one or several volumes
which are approachable for buyers of all scope. By creating
these very accessible auction catalogs, strong bidder interest
is created for all the items in
a collection. In addition, by offering collections in their
entirety, we are able to capture strong returns for the
more abundant items by allowing them to stand on the shoulders
of the high-value, headline pieces from the collection.
There is only one path to generating the maximum return
for a collection: by finding eager buyers for everything
in the collection.
collection is too big or too small and we can pick up anywhere
in the country within seven days. When you are ready to
sell, call us first and be sure to keep your collection
intact – avoid offers to break up groups or remove
high-value items, leaving behind a fragmented group with
severely limited market appeal. We would be pleased to discuss
your collection with you when you are ready to sell and
want to make an informed decision before committing to a
course of action.

we plan to use their services again."

- Joan C. Curtiss, Boyce Thompson Institute,
Hall was a tremendous help to our family as we
went through the arduous task of liquidating my
94-year-old mother-in-law’s estate. David
was kind enough to come to our home within 24
hours so that he could meet with our siblings
who were in from out of town for only a weekend.
Dave was reassuring, professional and incredibly
knowledgeable about our books, art and other artifacts.
I called David first as he is a member of the
Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce. I highly
recommend the services of National Book Auctions.
Many thanks to Dave and his hard working staff.
They made a painful task for our family so much

"If you have a book or group of books to
sell, these are the people to see. We were very
pleased and would recommend National Book Auctions
- M. Vaughn, family estate
Book Auctions was a wonderful find for our residential
living/learning community library. We were able
to fill our shelves with quality books for students'
use at a very affordable price. I would recommend
them for any individual or organization interested
in purchasing single collectible books or shelf-lots
of sorted high caliber books."
