Tips from the
University Cellar:
Generally, our
ability to buy a
book depends
on the
following
saleability
factors:
Reported usage in
future courses.
History of usage in
past courses.
Whether or not the
book is the most
recent edition.
Probability of a future
new edition.
General physical condition
of the book - particularly
the binding.
Potential for our being able to
resell the book either to other
bookstores or national wholesalers.
Whether or not we are already
overstocked in that particular title.
About condition
and future usage:
We resell books in poor condition
at a lower price.
Therefore, if the binding is broken,
or if the book is heavily marked,
we must pay lower prices for it.
Workbooks and programmed texts
must be totally unmarked in order
to be sold back.

Trade books (those small, pre-
priced, paperback books of mass-
market variety) generally get 25%
to 33% of the list (cover) price.
Opposite, is only
a partial list
of books
that the
University
Cellar
will buy.
There are many
others for which
we will pay half
price or more!!
After
the first
few days
of classes,
demand

for textbooks

decreases

Language and law books must be
cleaner than other books in order
to get top prices.
We may not have information about
the future usagerof a book...
When this happens, we pay the
highest prices we can.
We will inform you when this situa-
tion arises, so that you can decide
whether to sell now or later.
On most books this will be higher
than wholesale prices.

sharply, so sell

your books now
