Frequently Asked Question
How much is my old book is worth?
Many different factors must be taken into account when appraising books. Edition is most important, but the presence or absence of a dust jacket is very important and also greatly affects the value of a book, as does the overall book condition.Very special or unique bindings, regardless of edition, are sometimes collectible. It is generally impossible to determine rarity or actual value of any item via email inquiry. In most cases it is necessary to see the actual book in order to make a valid assessment.
The Midwest Antiquarian Booksellers Association, (MWABA) is a non-profit organization of book dealers, and, as such, does not appraise, buy, or sell books, however many of our members would be qualified to assist you with your book needs.
Many of our members are qualified to do appraisals. Should you wish to contact one of them regarding your books, please search our Online Membership Directory or click on the 'DIRECTORY' link in the navigation bar on the left. Our members are located primarily in
the Midwestern states.
