AntiquarianAuctions.com was set up by antiquarian bookseller Paul Mills, who has been an active dealer in the international rare book trade for over 35 years and is a member of rare book trade associations such as ABA, ILAB and SABDA and various international rare book organisations and collectors clubs.
The site was developed and is run by a team with over 10 years experience in the international book trade as well as experience in live bidding technology and digital marketing.
AntiquarianAuctions.com is not another internet start up. It has a proven track record of successfully running rare book internet auctions and building its database since 2010.
AntiquarianAuctions.com is the only online auction platform for rare book dealers worldwide to auction stock.
Starting in the Spring of 2020, and using the successful model pioneered by Paul Mills, Adam Langlands has brought AntiquarianAuctions. com to the United States. The same high standards are applied, but Adam is supervising a more northern hemisphere friendly series of sales. Based in Connecticut. Adam will concentrate on offering a custom service to selected rare book dealers in North America, with the aim of continuing the parent company's proven track record of selling to collectors world-wide.
