Ambassador University Library

CNY Book Auctions and National Book Auctions are pleased to announce that we will be spending September, 2006 through February, 2007, selling approximately 100,000 books from the former Ambassador University campus library in Big Sandy, Texas. The auctions will take place on location in Texas (approximately two miles east of Big Sandy, on Route 80) and will be usually be organized into Friday evening and Saturday afternoon pairs of auctions, combined with library-style book sales beginnning in January. Each typical weekend will include approximately 800 lots, containing nearly 10,000 books. Later auction dates will be posted as they are scheduled, stay tuned to our website for updated information. This library is a complete university campus facility with full Library of Congress categorization and has been closed since 1997. The library’s closing pre-dates the advent of internet book selling and this is the first time this inventory has been put to market. Over the three-month period, we will systematically move through the library, following the classifications. The library contains a high percentage of antique books including many landmark texts of significant value. We have also been finding a steady flow of important author signatures and inscriptions in many of the books. We will be organizing the auction lots into individual titles, small groups and boxlots. This is a rare opportunity to access a massive collection of strong dealer inventory and collectible titles including thousands of antique books and limited print scholarly works.
