About our Store

Shop History


We have been buying, selling & appraising rare, interesting and scholarly books in Georgetown for nearly 25 years. Over the years we have taken great pleasure from satisfying our customers' eclectic literary requirements in the shop and hope to continue in that tradition in this on-line book shop.


Currently, our catalogued inventory includes about 4,000 books from the sixteenth century through the twentieth century in a variety of subject areas. About a third of our books are antiquarian books (published prior to 1880); the rest of our stock comprises collectible and scholarly books.


The books listed here represent only a small portion of our total inventory. We are in the process of cataloguing the extensive holdings in our warehouse (15,000+ books) and hope to flesh out these pages over the months to come. Our new format allows us to expand & update our listings frequently. We have included images of many items listed to better convey their quality and condition.
