We are Yale Representation

Yale Representation has been selling books in the UK for nearly 30 years, enough time for us to proudly claim we are leaders in the field of specialist sales representation.

A particular feature of our service is our dedicated, head office-based sales management team who provide expert guidance and support to our publishing partners, our reps and to booksellers.

Our experienced reps hit the road armed with as much information as possible about the books they are selling, and match this knowledge with the needs of the bookseller.  Yale Representation has nurtured deep and long-lasting relationships with both publishers and book buyers, a union of interests which has borne substantial rewards for all involved.

We carry books on a remarkably wide range of subjects – art, history, politics, religion, biography, natural history, science, maps, music, and many others – and are experts at finding the markets for this range of topics. We do this by visiting all major retailers, museums, galleries, wholesalers, library suppliers and, of course, bookshops by appointment.

Above all, the Yale Representation team prides itself on its professionalism, efficiency and friendliness, qualities that have enabled us to flourish in the UK book market.

With so strong and diverse a client publisher base, there is never a shortage of fabulous books for James Brook to show me, which he does with great professionalism and enthusiasm.
