We Buy Folio Society Books.

We are always looking to buy Folio Society books, so if you have books to sell, be that single volumes, boxed sets or an entire collection, we'd love to hear from you.

We can only give  a rough guide to the sort of prices we pay, but you can expect £2 per volume for pre 1980 books, £3 for books from the 1980s and £4 per volume for books from the 1990s and for books published since 2000 we will usually pay at least £5 a volume. More sought after titles would obviously attract a premium and boxed sets are priced on a pro-rata basis. We also buy Folio Society Limited Editions offering competitive prices for these titles.  The books should be in their slipcases and be in VG or better condition (see our condition definitions here).
