Business overview

Rochdale Book Company specialises in rare and out of print books.

John and Sue Worthy, trading as the Rochdale Book Company, opened an antiquarian and second-hand book shop in 1972, but had to close at the end of 2005 to make way for a large roundabout. We now work from a large warehouse in the adjacent town of Bury.

We sell principally at around 30 book fairs a year and also on the internet. A small selection of our stock may be viewed online by clicking through to our website.

We are very keen to buy good quality books on most subjects, but do not require paperbacks, book club books, or modern popular publications. Single items of value and collections both large and small are of interest, and we are prepared to travel throughout the country for the right books. Immediate payment is offered.

Good Experience

I had a small collection of very old books. Their buyer called as arranged last week, gave me a very good price, more than I expected, paid cash and took the books away that afternoon. Very happy with the experience.

Great service and very good price

John and Sue both came to the house when I was looking at getting rid of some old books I had had for years gathering dust in the loft. I was presently surprised with the price I got and the service as I didn't even need to leave the house, cleared up some space and made a bit of money in the process. Highly recommended, 5* service
