We Buy Books

The Heldfond Book Gallery, Ltd. consistently strives to select the highest quality Fine and Rare books for our clients. Our reputation for fairness and integrity in the purchasing of private libraries is a carefully cultivated one of which we are ever mindful.

Decades of experience in the book trade have rendered us quite sensitive to the fact that, for many, the sale of books can be a trying and emotional endeavor. We believe trust and professionalism go hand in hand in assuaging this anxiety and are essential in creating a comfortable, fruitful relationship between buyer and seller. Most potential sellers approach us as a result of our reputation throughout the community and their understanding that, as long-standing elected members of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, we fastidiously adhere to and are bound by, the strictest ethical regulations in the Rare Book trade.

We purchase books in great variety and in any quantity - from single volumes to entire collections. Should you be considering the sale of books, presently or in the future, we would appreciate the opportunity of viewing them and to offer you a fair market price for them. We will surpass any other book dealer’s legitimate offer for those books in which we have an interest.

We will also evaluate those books which we cannot use and advise you of the most promising selling alternatives available to you.

If you are unable to bring your books to us, we would be pleased to schedule a House Call, where our buyer may view materials you have to offer at a time best suited to your convenience.

We are always available to view and purchase materials at the Bookstore,
Monday-Saturdays from 11-5:30 :
310 San Anselmo Avenue (at Ross Avenue in downtown San Anselmo).

If you require further information, or if you would like to make a House Call appointment, please email us. We shall respond upon receipt.
