Book Appraisals

The Library of Congress does not appraise old books. We realize, though, that this is a topic of great interest to many people. We can suggest two places to begin:

Your Old Books is a pamphlet written by Peter Van Wingen, our late and sorely missed Rosenwald curator. It is a list of questions to ask yourself, putting you on a path to discovering a book's value.  An electronic version is available through the courtesy of the RBMS Electronic Information Technologies Committee (ad hoc), or we can send you a copy. Contact us using one of the addresses provided below.

The Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America, publishes an annual membership directory. It includes subject and geographical indices to help you contact the booksellers who might be of assistance.

If you'd like us to send you the latest copy, write, email, or fax us at the addresses below.
