The Underground Books Purchase Policy

Want to sell or trade your books? Read this first!

We take pride in ethical buying practices and are active members in professional bookselling associations including the American Booksellers Association, Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance, Independent Online Booksellers Association, and the Georgia Antiquarian Booksellers Association. 

For large book collections: We specialize in purchasing large book collections, estate libraries, and housefuls of books. If you have a large book collection you are interested in selling, we can schedule a time to come to your location, evaluate your books, and offer a fair wholesale price for any books we wish to purchase. Note we are usually booked for house calls several weeks out at any given time. Please e-mail us at (preferred) or call Josh on his cell phone at (678)977-5517 (if necessary!) with the following information: your name, an estimate of the number of books in the collection, the general age of the books, any subject areas of the collection, your location, and your relationship to the book collection.

For in-store buying: While most of our book-buying is focused on private collections and estates, we do also buy smaller quantities “over-the-counter” in the shop. You can look below for further information on store credit trades like these.
