How can I determine the value of my books? How do I find a bookseller, appraiser or conservator?


Answer

Special Collections at the University of Delaware Library does not provide appraisal services. It is best to pursue this information provided by professionals who are aware of market values, collecting trends, and who can view the condition of the item(s) in person.

The Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of American as well as the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers provide membership lists to help identify local booksellers and appraisers near you.
