Due to an excess of supply of books (and the subsequent lack of space), Old Capitol Books will only be purchasing the following book genres: local history, classic literature, military history, modern art, some young adult literature, sci-fi, and the esoteric in most genres. We offer cash and will continue to accept these books for trade-in/store credit. Feel free to contact us for more information.
Visit our New Arrivals page for a list of awesome new books of the military variety! We just received these books and would love to sell them to you!
