Open stacks and a book carrel..... 
"A boon to scholars and to those surreptitiously in search of esoteric knowledge. 
The reader in the shadowy, out-of-the-way carrel stifled a whoop of delight." 
Carolyn G. Hart, mystery writer.

After a run of fourteen years I officially closed shop at the end of 2017 and am no longer a retail bookseller. Consequently I am no longer accepting consignments or purchasing books. However, I am discounting my remaining inventory and selling it off as a private party in 2018.

I have dealt principally in scholarly and antiquarian books, with an emphasis on art books. I still have a choice selection of books, prints and ephemera for the discriminating customer. Please search or browse my inventory of hard-to-find, out-of-print, used, and rare items.

A discount of 30% off the list price of all items is available, provided that the minimum order is at least $30. To activate the coupon use code LX570. Coupon valid 1 May 2018 to 30 June 2018. Significantly larger discounts are available for bulk purchases of 100 or more books. Contact me for details. Media Mail, Priority Mail and International Mail will be quoted at cost. No shipping within California. Pick-up, boxing and shipping of bulk purchases is the responsibility of the buyer.

I want to thank my customers, whether recent or long-time, for their patronage and support.
