We changed our Name, now it's time to change any expiring AE links

More than a year ago we changed the name of Americana Exchange to Rare Book Hub [www.rarebookhub.com].  We did so because, while we have long enjoyed significant support in the United States, we had lower percentages of participation elsewhere, particularly in Europe.

 

A year later, with a new name, we have seen the level of participation worldwide increase.  The new name, Rare Book Hub, better reflects the broad range of records we provide.

 

Over the past year search engines have been re-directing Americana Exchange traffic to the new site but recently that privilege has begun to expire.  So for anyone who has saved a link to Americana Exchange it’s now time to create a new link for Rare Book Hub.

 

Going forward we’ll continue to add both old and new auction records.  We now see in the future ten million records and in time a seamless history of books, manuscripts, maps and ephemera from 1860 to yesterday.

 

To experience this, if you have a now outdated link to AE, please change it to Rare Book Hub.  There together we’ll make history as we bring the past back into the present.
