Experience and Expertise
Who I am: I have two decades of experience advising collectors, building antiquarian libraries in all fields, and managing rare book retail operations. My business and collections are a full-time labor of love; however, presently, only a part-time occupation.
Subject Specialization: I maintain and sell antiquarian rare editions and Americana on subjects relating to presidential and military history, political science, economics, law and the philosophical influences on democracy and American government. Topics of interest also include Revolutionary and Federal period histories and original documents, presidential biographies, the history of slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction and the Civil Rights era.
Professional Services: Providing consultation on acquisitions, appraisals, as well as library and gift services related to book collecting and major landmarks in fields including history, literature, children's literature, science, exploration and the history of the printed word. I am happy to offer free recommendations about your old volumes. If I cannot assist directly, I will do my best to offer advice and to refer you to reputable friends in the trade who can help you locate that long sought-after title.
I do buy books! ...Specifically, first, rare or early editions related to political science and American history, including interesting pamphlets, sets of author's works or first editions.
