Reverse Auction Instructions:

The Reverse Auction is a weekly feature of Bradbury Books. It is highlighted as a link on the website.

Reverse Auction items are listed initially at a fair market value for pre-owned books and media. Each week an item remains on the list its price is reduced by approximately 10% until it sells or is removed and added to one of our clearance sale lists (also on the website).

There is no ability to order via the website. Bradbury Books is a mail order bookstore and dependent on personal interaction via email or telephone. Dan Bradbury manages the operation and has been in the magic book business since 1992.

To place an order and/or verify availability, customers must send requests in via email to or phone 816-531-2468 and leave a message. We respond to queries and fill orders as they are received.  Most items are single copies and are available subject to prior sale.

Please include your zip code with your query and, if you are located outside the U.S. or live in Missouri, include where you want your order shipped. We will respond with availability, total cost including shipping and any tax if applicable.

Please confirm your purchase within 24 hours of hearing from us. Items are shipped within two days of receiving your payment. Either via PayPal  paid to or pay by check, sent to Bradbury Books, 4545 Wornall Rd., Ste. 805, Kansas City, MO 64111.

GUARANTEE—if you want to return an item for any reason, we offer a full refund of the purchase price minus shipping costs.

NOTE: All items are sold on a “first come, first served” basis. Also, customers finding items they really want should ask for them at the initial price offering or risk waiting and having the item being sold.
