About Us

We have been buying and selling quality books in all fields since 1990.

We have a select inventory of 30,000 items, including out-of-print hardcover books, antiquarian titles, historic photographs, autograph material, early printed maps, ephemera and more.

We welcome phone and email inquiries as well as want lists. In addition, we are interested in acquiring collections of books or individual volumes. An evaluation service is available (on a fee basis) for individuals, auctioneers, financial institutions, etc. We cannot accurately evaluate items that we have not physically inspected, as value and the condition of an item is subject to numerous variables, many of which cannot be adequately represented via photograph or jpeg image, or recognized except by a trained eye. We can arrange for your item or collection to be received, safely stored, insured, evaluated, and returned to you upon completion of and full payment for services rendered. We may be able to arrange to travel to the location of your collection to perform this service (at your expense). Or, we may be able to recommend a colleague from your general area whom you might contract for your evaluation needs.
