Antiques and Collectibles

Books and Collectibles offer an all encompassing range of collectible books, maps, prints, records, CD's and ephemera from our huge online bookstore, backed by an online
database that is constantly updated.


An antique is an old collectible item. It is collected or desirable because of its age, rarity, condition, utility, or other unique features. Any work of art, piece of furniture, decorative object, or the like, created or produced in a former period, representing a previous era in human society.

When going into antiques you should decide if you are just a collector or a buyer and seller, if you are going to be buying with an eye to sell then it is extremely important never to get too attached to a particular piece. If you are going into one particular area of antiques, then do everything you can to find out as much about your chosen area before you even attempt to start collecting. Different areas will have different problems associated with it and if you don't want to get stuck with with junk then it is essential that you learn everything there is to learn about the antiques you are buying.

Always remember that valuations for antiques can go down as well as up, and While the majority of pieces will increase in value, this cannot be depended upon. When going into collecting for fun then stick with one theme, for example a certain era of books or a style of pottery. Don’t become too diverse and head off into different directions. Building up just one collection will be more profitable in the long run if you should wish to sell.

Always buy the best that you can possible afford when starting out, looking for bargains requires expertise. Buying reduced items with the intention of restoring and cleaning them to make a profit is not the best way for the beginner start off. Always assess the item that you purchasing very carefully, inspecting all aspects of the item. Always turn it upside down and inside out looking for blemishes, any sign that is has been damaged and signs of restoration. If the item is not perfect it can significantly reduce its value.

Collectible Books

When collecting books there are several factors to consider, not simply how old a book is. Most importantly is the condition of the book, and whether it is complete or not. A book is complete if it has its original dust jacket and all its original parts. While a jacket may seem an unimportant part of a book, it is actually the most fragile and most likely part to be missing or severely damaged. As a result, the rarity of fragile jackets makes them more valuable than the book itself.  A book with missing pages is almost always worthless - no matter how old it is. The only exceptions might be books that have full-page colour plates that can be rescued, and a few immensely valuable early printed books such as the Gutenberg Bible. There are only three factors that matter: condition, scarcity, and demand. Age has nothing to do with value.

Do you want to know the retail or the wholesale price? If you are researching for insurance purposes, or valuing an estate, then you'll want retail prices. However, if you are trying to figure out what you can sell the item for then a whole other range of factors come into play. For example, how quickly a bookseller can resell it.

Featuring a sophisticated book search engine, we source rare, used and out of print books from all over the world. Based in Australia, our service offers you the opportunity to search the stock of book stores worldwide. Click here for more information on our products and services...

highlight.gif  Antique swords, weapons & militaria
We are antique militaria & weapons dealers in British, German, European and worldwide items. Over the last 30 years we have provided all kinds of arms & general militaria collectibles to customers all around the world. Items handled range from small swords to polearms, longarms to revolvers, buckles & badges, bayonets & medals (not to mention helmets, hats & caps)!

A Little History...
I have been a collector of military antiques since the age of 12, starting with bayonets and moving gradually on to swords, finally entering the broader military antique dealing arena in about 1970. At that stage, I rapidly started to learn about antique English pistols and revolvers.
In about 1980, I broadened my dealing coverage from mainstream militaria to include English campaign medals. The arrival of powerful auction houses in this field drove me back to my original interest in general militaria (swords, bayonets, dirks, guns, pistols, etc).
However, I still maintain a lively interest in all military objects, especially the rare and exotic, eg Imperial Russian and Austrian.

Throughout my dealing career, I have built up my personal collection of antique military prints and drawings and a substantial selection of early military photographs up to 1945, principally German and English. To aid both my dealing and collecting, I have a huge library covering all military aspects of antiques going back to the Middle Ages, and many aspects of antiques in general, especially early English silver.

highlight.gif  Russian art and russian collectibles from R and L
Russian collectibles of faux Faberge pendants, crystal art, lacquer boxes in various shapes depicting religious scenes, assorted books, mammoth tusk art, and Matryoshka dolls with Christmas, political, religious, sports and traditional themes.

In 1994, we traveled through Russia, visiting Kiev, Moscow, and St. Petersburg. While soaking in the culture and browsing through different shops where nesting dolls and lacquer boxes were displayed, we decided to buy these works of art for our own enjoyment.
Wishing to bring these beautiful pieces to the U.S. public, in 1995, we began to buy and sell on a larger scale to share our new found passion and treasures. Our goals are to purchase the work from an artist at the price the artist asks and to furnish the customer with the item they desire at a price they can afford.
R&L, Ltd. differs from other import companies because we strive to offer the collector, as well as the beginner, a broader choice of new artists, a wide selection of themes and styles, and better pricing and service for the Russian items and artists we represent. We make the collector's dream a reality by finding the work they are looking for or by filling a special order from their favorite artist.

Book Values
A helpful article on determining the value of used and rare books, by D J McAdam. Since I was, formerly, an antiquarian bookseller by profession, I still occasionally receive e-mails and telephone calls asking me to state a value for a certain book or group of books that someone has in his or her possession. This isn't really possible, for numerous reasons. I feel that it would be a disservice to others to state general platitudes about book values - there are, especially in the world of book collecting, numerous exceptions to every rule. The good news is that, while I can't tell you what your book is worth, there are ways of obtaining that information.
