ADVICE ON SELLING MARITIME BOOKS

Does anyone know of a reliable dealer in maritime books? I have a relation who is wanting to sell his collection, many first editions, that he amassed in his 90+ years, many of which he spent as a world-wide blue-water sailor.
Thanks,
David

Why not start right here. I would bet there are lots of members who would be interested in books from this collection. Or does he want to sell the whole thing in one lot?

I will ask him. Good idea, if a bit time-consuming to handle that way.

Sell it here or on eBay. A dealer would offer peanuts for used books anyway.
