What We Buy and Sell

Resource Books, LLC not only buys and sells antiquarian and out-of-print books, but also related items, such as bookends, postcards, inkstands, old written correspondence, maps and atlases, all kinds of old paper items, and much more. We carry a wide variety of books dating from the sixteenth through the twenty-first centuries, with a minor emphasis on non-fiction, but we don't restrict our stock based on subject matter - if we think it's interesting or unusual, we try to offer it.

We purchase single books, small or large quantities of books and paper, and even entire private libraries or bookstores throughout New England and Northeastern New York, and will travel further for unique buying opportunities. We have purchased more than 30,000 books in a single purchase, so inquiries about large-scale purchasing opportunities (bookstores or libraries) are welcome.

Through an affiliated company, Gallery One, we also purchase artwork, jewelry, silver, coins and stamps, and other old and unusual items.  We also have good contacts we can share for items that we do not purchase ourselves.  Questions?  Just ask.

Resource Books, LLC and Gallery One can handle entire estates; please contact us for more information.

Other Services

Other services we provide include book searches; consultation on furnishing personal libraries (books and other items, from bookends to bookcases, from maps and globes to lighting); library and museum de-accession sales; library fundraising sales; consignment sales; and complete estate liquidation. 

We are also available locally for "Antiques Roadshow" - type benefit events or will speak to small groups about collecting and caring for books.  Resource Books, LLC participated in the Connecticut Treasure Hunt held at the Mohegan Sun Arena and sponsored by CPTV [Connecticut Public Television] in 2009 and 2010.
