National Book Auctions is a specialist auction house focusing almost exclusively on rare and collectible books since the 1990s. The auction house is designed to make the most of an underserved market, offering increased marketing attention and fair prices for rare and valuable books that might otherwise go unnoticed and undervalued. National Book Auctions offers several auction sales per year, and as a platinum house on Invaluable.com, hosted 19 live online auctions on the site.
As a hub for rare and significant books, National Book Auctions has a number of interesting sales in their records. These include a signed first edition of To Kill a Mockingbird, complete with dust jacket, for $6,500, as well as an antique hand illumed art piece, sold for $2,800.
The primary focus of National Book Auctions is books, particularly those that benefit from research to reach their best value. In addition to books, National Book Auctions offers consignment auction sales for collectable paper, including art, stamps, currency, and ephemera.
National Book Auctions accepts consignments of all sizes, from single pieces to large collections and entire libraries. The auction house is particularly adept at handling large estates, organizing them into themed lots and working to ensure good prices for all items in a collection. In addition to consignment sales, National Book Auctions offers professional appraisals for insurance, estate, or market valuation.
Book collectors worldwide view National Book Auctions as a destination for collectable books and paper items. Upcoming auction schedules for National Book Auctions are available online. Located in Ithaca, NY, live auction gallery bidding is encouraged. Bids are also accepted by telephone, absentee bidding, and in live online bidding with Invaluable.com.
The owner of National Book Auctions, David Hall, has a long history as a book dealer. He got his start in book auctions as a buyer -- but after a series of too good to be true auction prices, realized that many rare and significant books were being sold for far less than their true value. This inspired him to create National Book Auctions, giving important books and collectable paper items a more appreciated and valuable sales forum.
