FAQs

A relative of mine has died and we have been left with a collection of books. Would you be interested in valuing and buying?

We are interested in collections of books, but not in modern 20th century reference, unless of course signed. With collections of older or signed books please feel free to email us at books@nuckley.me.uk including photographs of the spines and title pages and any useful pieces of information regarding the books, including any significant provenance. If you are looking for a valuation, this is a service we do not offer, however a local auction house is always a good port of call if you just want to know what a book is worth.

Do you buy odd volumes?

Alas no, unless signed or an early rare work (i.e. prior to 1700).

Can you come and value my book?

At this point we are not offering valuations. A local auction house is a good port of call.

Can you look at my books?

In the first instance please send us an email. We can visit however only for larger collections or if there are items of interest which have already been identified.

Many thanks

Nuckley Rare Books.

The Booksellers | Official Trailer

The Booksellers | Official Trailer

In 1950s New York, there were 368 booksellers in the city. Today, there are 79. Along with monumental changes in the dominate form of communication and electric media, the book and the bookseller may look like an anachronism of a bygone age — and you’d be wrong. From lifelong book dealers to rookies, The Booksellers looks at an old profession, and one of our most important.

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers. In Theaters March 6, 2020 Director: D.W. Young
