Looking For A Book?

Here at The Mad Samplar, we love books - buying books, selling books and looking for books! If you are looking for a particular book, we would be happy to check our extensive resources. We perform book searches almost every day and often come across "hard-to-find" titles at reasonable prices. Using the form below, we ask that you supply the author, title, ISBN (if known), condition (if needed) as well as the maximum amount you would be willing to pay for the book (The maximum amount is used merely as a guideline for appropriate results and does not affect the pricing of the books as we have a standard mark up for this service). Once a book is located that meets your criteria, we will email you the specifics regarding the book at the email address supplied on the form and ask that you reply within 48 hours and let us know if you are still interested in the book.

After 48 hours, the book will be offered to the next person who submitted a request, if another exists, and your request will be removed from the system. Completing the form does not constitute an offer to purchase the book. If you do not wish to purchase the book upon receipt of the email, please let us know and we will mark it off of our list!

*Condition need only be supplied if it is of particular importance to you. The books located and offered on the website will normally be in Very Good or better condition with any defects noted. If condition is of no concern (i.e., the book is a research copy), you may indicate "any" in the condition criterium and we will also include books of lesser condition (though still complete) in your results.

Please note: The large demand for used and out-of-print needlework books means that often books do not remain available for very long. We cannot guarantee that the books returned in our results will still be available once we receive your reply, but we will always do our best and work quickly to try and obtain books per your request. Accordingly, the quicker you are able to reply to an email the more likely it is that we will be able to supply your book. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
