Other Services

Do you have books you wish to sell?

Within our area of specialization (literary first editions of the Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries), we are always eager to purchase entire libraries, significant author collections, and fine individual volumes.

Sumner & Stillman also is pleased to sell such books on a consignment basis -- a service not provided by many antiquarian book dealers. On a volume sold by us for $6,000.00, for example, our sales commission is only $900.00; on a volume sold for $2,000.00, only $400.00. Full details of our consignment arrangement are available.

Do you need to have books appraised?

For customers who have been buying books from us, we offer the service of conducting appraisals of books that fall within our field of expertise -- whether for insurance or estate or gift purposes.

For more information about any of the above services, please proceed to our Mailing/Want List, where you may e-mail an inquiry to us right now.
