Introducing: BIBLIO's Auction and Book Sales Archive

Modified on Tue, 06 Feb 2024 at 04:28 PM

What is the Auction and Book Sales Archive?



We are excited to introduce the forthcoming BIBLIO’s Auction and Book Sales Archive. This archive comprises almost five decades of auction records, meticulously gathered by American Book Prices Current, and is complemented by BIBLIO’s extensive historical sales data. The Auction and Book Sales Archive delivers distinctive and authoritative insights into book values, rarity, and provenance. It serves as a valuable resource for rare book dealers, appraisers, institutions, collectors, and anyone engaged in or passionate about the rare and antiquarian book industry.


What is the relationship between BIBLIO and American Book Prices Current (ABPC)?



In 2024, BIBLIO, in collaboration with the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, acquired the exclusive rights to ABPC's database. This strategic move aims to uphold and enhance the legacy of furnishing valuable and authoritative insights into the value, scarcity, and provenance of books and manuscripts



Is BIBLIO’s Auction and Book Sales Archive only available to booksellers?


The Auction and Book Sales Archive is open to everyone, including rare book dealers, appraisers, institutions, collectors, and anyone engaged in or intrigued by the rare and antiquarian book industry.



What are the dues for accessing the BIBLIO’s Auction and Book Sales Archive?


Remember that those who pre-register by May 31, 2024 will receive 50% off their first dues payment. Regular dues are as follows:



* BIBLIO booksellers who are opted into our Billing Option B receive an automatic 20% discount on dues
** As part of our cooperative venture, ABAA members’ dues are already included in their annual dues to ABAA.


What are the benefits of pre-registering?


Take advantage of a 50% discount on your initial dues payment (whether quarterly or annually) by pre-registering. Additionally, pre-registrants will enjoy early-bird access to the beta launch, expected in late April or early May. The complete product will be available to the general public on June 1, 2024.


What is the cost for members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA)?


As part of our cooperative venture with ABAA, access to the BIBLIO’s Auction and Book Sales Archive is automatically included in your annual ABAA dues. There is no additional charge for access.


What if I pre-register, and then later change my mind?

You have the option to cancel and receive a full refund at any time until the product is delivered to you. However, refunds will not be available after the beta launch.


How many devices / people from my firm can access the database?

Each license includes one seat, which means one device at a time may access the database. ABAA members get two seats. If you need additional seats, please contact us at absa@biblio.com.
