Hennessey + Ingalls will buy back books of quality that we feel people still want, either good used copies or fine rare editions. Paperbacks must be in new condition to have any resale value. All books and items must be evaluated in-store to accurately assess their resale value. We are unable to quote prices over the phone; however, we do encourage you to contact us before bringing in large quantities of books to discuss the best way to proceed. 

We do not accept donations.

Books must be within these subjects:

  • Architecture
  • Art
  • Photography
  • Graphic Design
  • Interior Design
  • Landscape
  • Fashion
  • Furniture
  • Industrial Design
  • Transportation


We do NOT buy back:

  • Ficton and Non-fiction
  • Bibles
  • Outdated Textbooks
  • Comic Books


If you are selling large quantities of books, you may be asked to leave your books for evaluation.

For further information please call our Store (213) 437-2130 and ask to speak with the book buyer. Please be aware that we are unable to quote prices over the phone for your books; all books must be evaluated in store by our buyers to accurately assess their resale value.

Thank you for your interest.
