Our mission is the preservation of cultural heritage through books, maps and other works of fine art.
As antiquarians, we enable academics to conduct their scholarship with the necessary materials.
Over the last decade, we have purchased collections ranging in size from 50 to 100,000 books: providing logistic strategies, transportation options, manpower, and qualified supervision.
We are committed to accurately describing books, using standard bibliographic and rare book terminology in an effort to effectively market them online.
We have developed strong relationships in the antiquarian community with ABAA members Edward Hoffman, Nicholas Potter & William Dailey, regularly serving as professional mentors.
Through our consignment program, we have built a network of collectors and book dealers that rely on our expertise to adequately price, catalog, store and ship their books.
We are always interested in discussing the books you might like to sell, consign or just brag about.
Academico markets books with the following online providers. Simply click to explore our offerings.
Academico evaluates used books in many subjects and makes fair marketplace-based offers accordingly. We are often asked: how much do you pay for books? The answer is based on an algorithm of past sales experience, current supply and perceived demand. Your signed Hemingway will garner upwards of 50% of recent realized Auction results, but for most books in the $20-200 range, we generally offer 20-25%.
So, dust off those tomes in Grandma's attic! Clear out the garage! Uncle John has what?
We purchase books in many categories, with premiums paid for academically and historically significant antiquarian books
We simply buy. And pay cash for the best used books, on this coast or the other one.
We do not purchase Reader's Digest, magazines or Encyclopedias.
