University Archives Seeking High-Quality Consignments

In business for over 40 years, University Archives has paid out over $200 million for items just like yours! Our monthly auctions attract nearly 6,000 registered online bidders (and counting) from over 60 countries around the world. We buy or take on consignment autographs, rare books, historical documents, and relics.

We are especially seeking material related to Presidents and First Ladies; Declaration of Independence and Constitution Signers; Revolutionary War; Civil War; World War I; World War II; Science; Space; Literary; Art; and World Leaders, as well as items of general interest. $1,000,000 in cash advances are immediately available for your historical items.

A Few of our Highlights
In early 2020, we sold two items related to Abraham Lincoln which fetched a combined quarter of a million dollars. A PSA/DNA encapsulated and graded Gem Mint 10 Lincoln signed carte de visite realized $75,000, while a book formative to Lincoln’s views on slavery–inscribed and signed by him–changed hands a few lots later for $175,000. And we do much more than just presidential: in October 2018, we sold Bob Dylan’s handwritten and signed lyrics of “The Times They Are A-Changin'” for $132,000, while an Albert Einstein typed letter signed discussing gravitation and time brought just shy of $50,000 in August 2019.
