About Search Results

YP - The Real Yellow PagesSM - helps you find the right local businesses to meet your specific needs. Search results are sorted by a combination of factors to give you a set of choices in response to your search criteria. These factors are similar to those you might use to determine which business to select from a local Yellow Pages directory, including proximity to where you are searching, expertise in the specific services or products you need, and comprehensive business information to help evaluate a business's suitability for you. “Preferred” listings, or those with featured website buttons, indicate YP advertisers who directly provide information about their businesses to help consumers make more informed buying decisions. YP advertisers receive higher placement in the default ordering of search results and may appear in sponsored listings on the top, side, or bottom of the search results page.

Friendly, Professional Service If You're Downsizing

My wife and I are moving into a condo and I needed to downsize my library by a few hundred books. Called A Book By Its Cover. The owner was able to come out the same day and bought a lot of the theology and Biblical commentaries I don't need anymore. He has a background as a Professor so it was enjoyable to talk books with him while he was here. It's nice to find a book dealer who actually knows the books he is dealing with. The price he offered was very fair and I was happy to see my books go to a dealer who will find a good home for them. Thanks and I hope your business continues to grow.

What A Great Selection of Kentucky Books!

Can't tell you how happy I am to have found this store on-line. I've been looking FOREVER for some Kentucky county history books so I could do my family's genealogy. Last week I found this store through ABE.com and ordered two Kentucky county histories that are not to be found anywhere else in the country--and believe me, I've searched. They arrived in the mail yesterday in BRAND NEW condition. Didn't even need to spend money on gas to pick them up! What a great service! Access the store's website and you can look at their entire inventory on-line. Their Kentucky section really is tops!

The Book Attic

Trying to find a good used book!

I was looking for an older book by J.D. Robb and the other used bookstores in the area did'nt have it. So, I called the book attic and spoke with the owner. She was very helpfull, said she had the book and would set it aside till I arrived! When I arrived, the store was bright and clean (didn't smell like old books). I gave the girl my name and she had my book right there. I was impressed! I ended up spending another hour in the store and found 5 other books I had been looking for! Great Deal, Great Service, Great Selections - I'll be back!

Many thanks for the courteous,...

Many thanks for the courteous, professional appraisal of our parents' estate. There are three children in the family and we had no idea how to divide up the almost 1000 books in our parents' library or whether any of them had any collectors' value. The bookdealer provided us with a written appraisal in less than a week and even divided up the more valuable books into three groups of equal value. All in all a pretty painless process at a very reasonable rate. I definitely recommend this dealer to anyone looking to settle an estate.

Who Knew? Italian Music Scholarship For Sale in a Local Bookstore?! I Just Love It

I love cruising the local bookstores for the odd title you just can't find anywhere but I just checked out the newest selection of used books for sale at A Book By Its Cover and the owner has an entire bookcase of Italian Renaissance music scholarship for sale--most of it in Italian! Now that's what I call a great, eclectic bookstore! I dare you to find THAT at your local Borders or Barnes and Noble. Keep Louisville Weird! Any chance you'll be stocking Medieval manuscripts anytime soon?

A Book By Its Cover is the best used and rare bookstore in Louisville--period. The owner KNOWS books and can give you an honest appraisal and a fair offer. I just retired from the university and decided to downsize my library earlier this week. When I called the store, the owner was able to stop by the same day and look over my collection. Really enjoyed talking with him about book collecting and we were able to make a deal on the spot. Thanks again.

Thanks for the Operas on CD

Although their focus is on books, the owner carries a nice selection of opera on CD. Found his listings on Alibris and then called to confirm they were still in stock. The owner explained they all came from a single estate and were in like-new condition, so I went ahead and ordered three titlles, one by Handel and two by Mozart. They arrived in just a few days and they were everything I had hoped for. Thanks again for carrying these.

I contacted the owner via the web site and bought the book I wanted on his doorstep ... literally. I would love to have browsed a bit, but a nasty storm was supposed to be a-comin' through, thus the rush buying. I will return another time. The book is as described (signed and in fine/like new condition). He also very kindly honored an online coupon, which is very much appreciated. Thank you, Mr Johmann.

Excellent Appraisal Service--Fast and Inexpensive

Called the owner last week about about an insurance appraisal of my parents' library and he was able to look up the books and write up an evaluation within 5 days. The owner is also a professor with a lot of experience working with rare books. He treated me very courteously and took the time to explain which books are really worth keeping and which ones I should just throw away. Very satisfied.

Really Nice to Get an Honest Appraisal

Before I called A Book By Its Cover I had two other dealers tell me my book collection was worthless. They were only willing a give me a bulk price that worked out to 25 cents per book. A Book By Its Cover took the time to show me which books were valuable and which ones weren't and in the end I was able to sell the better books for a price I was happy with. Thanks!
