Charles Cox Rare Books
We have specialised in the purchase and sale of rare and valuable old books since 1974, buying both locally and internationally and selling to collectors, researchers, academic libraries and museums throughout the world.

We also undertake valuations for insurance or probate purposes and are always happy to give advice on the value, purchase or disposal of your books. Whether you want to find out more about one treasured volume, or dispose of a house full of books, we’ll do our best to help.

Our services include:

• the sale of antiquarian books and manuscripts
