Our books span the centuries, with volumes from the 1600s to the 2000s. We offer a general stock but focus on 19th and early 20th century English and American literature, poetry, architecture, decorative arts, private press books, signed and association copies, and authors' copies.

Each of our books have been carefully researched and cataloged and we are a proud member of the Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA) and abide by their rigorous ethics and description guidelines.
