About the CBC

As an independent bookseller in Cleveland, Ohio, I deal in used, rare, antiquarian, and out-of-print books, manuscripts, pamphlets, and personal and family papers. My family has been in the antiquarian book trade since 1971. Are you moving, downsizing, or doing some spring cleaning? Have you recently inherited or otherwise come into some old books? Maybe you're a collector of modern first editions, or have a whole book case full of recently published novels. We pay top dollar for rare and antiquarian books in all fields and subjects. We are proud members of IOBA (Independent Online Booksellers Association) and adhere strictly to their code of ethics.

We will travel throughout Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and New York, Eastern Indiana, and Southern Michigan, and in some cases farther for whole libraries or even just a few truly collectible individual titles. If you have some books to sell, or are just drowning in books that you don't know what to do with, contact us and we'll help you find the right solution.
