January 28th, 2015 in category The Book Trade

ABA LogoDouble-B-Books is proud to have joined the Antiquarian Booksellers Association (ABA) as an associate member. Founded in 1906 and the oldest organisation of its kind in the world, the ABA is the senior trade body for dealers in antiquarian and rare books, manuscripts and allied materials in the British Isles. Members are elected solely on the basis of proven experience, expertise and integrity and we're grateful for the vote of confidence that our membership represents. We also believe that in a digital age, where so much of our business is transacted anonymously over the internet ABA membership is the best guarantee of fair and ethical treatment that we can offer to prospective customers.  ABA members pledge to abide by the ABA's Code of Good Practice probably the most stringent Code of Good Practice yet adopted anywhere in the world of books.

 

The display of the ABA badge pledges members to:

 

• the authenticity of all material offered for sale

 

• the expert and proper description of all such material

 

• the disclosure of all significant defects or restorations

 

• the clear, accurate and professional pricing of all material
