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. Note that approximately 800 books with retail values in excess of $100 each have already been removed from this inventory and are no longer available for direct purchase from me.


I have dealt principally in scholarly and antiquarian books, with an emphasis on art books. I still have a choice selection of inexpensive 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.


Offers may be submitted for the entirety of the remaining inventory, excluding the Japanese ukiyo-e prints. There are 82 titles priced between $50 and $90 each. There are 166 titles priced under $50 each. Thus offers are being accepted for all 248 titles as a bulk purchase. The total retail value of these books in my inventory is about $9,500. Pick-up, boxing and shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.


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