viaLibri FAQ

 Q – I have found a book on viaLibri that I want to buy but I don’t see a shopping cart where I can place my order.  How do I make a purchase on your site?

A – If you want to buy something that you have found on our site you will need to contact the listing bookseller directly. You cannot buy it from us.  You need to look for the words “Buy From.”  in the lower left corner of the book description.  Next to it you will see a button with the price and the name of the bookseller who has it for sale.  Click the button and it will take you to the bookseller who can sell it to you.

Q – I have a book I would like to sell. Are you interested in buying it from me?

A – viaLibri does not buy books.  If you have a valuable book you would like to sell you should try to identify a specialist bookseller with experience buying and selling books similar to yours.  You should be able to identify other copies or similar items by searching on viaLibri.  If you find booksellers who are offering multiple books of the same kind as yours then they may also be interested in buying more.

Advice:  The most knowledgeable and reliable rare book sellers are usually members of trade associations in their home country.  You can identify those groups and their members by visiting  the website of the ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers):

Individual antiquarian booksellers with open book stores may also be able to help even if they are not specialised in the type of book you have to sell.


Q- I only want to search book dealers in the UK and only have prices in £s.
