I’ve been selling Antiquarian books since 1992. I specialize in books printed or manuscripts DSC_0028written before 1700.

My specialization is temporally idiosyncratic, I go off on trails, then off the trail and I discover new interests.  As you will see from the blog I try to find as much as I can in the books,  they are enjoyable, I enjoy the discovery and I hope you do too.

DSC_0028 2 We are member of the:

American Antiquarian Booksellers Association

The United Kingdom Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (ABA)

The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).

We are very proud to comply with the rules and the code of ethics of these  prestigious associations.
