If you are an experienced collector, you know the ropes. It's possible that you may know more about a particular rare book than we do; we do not pretend to know everything about every book and enjoy increasing our knowledge. We will appreciate your input.

Whether a new or old hand, we are here to help. Please inform us of your area(s) of interest and/or want list. We will do our best to satisfy your collecting needs.

Our blogs are our way of making new friends, connecting to old friends, and interacting with the community-at-large of rare book collectors worldwide. We enjoy socializing.

We will continually add to our online library of original and reprinted articles and essays about rare books. Please access our Articles page.

Our Resources page will provide you with links and/or information about key reference books, periodicals, binders, and book restoration.

If you would like to receive advance notice of new arrivals in your area(s) of interest and/or our specially prepared articles and reports before they are publicly posted, please join our family of valued clients. Fill out the brief subscription at right. Be assured that your privacy will be respected, that you will never be spammed, and that you may unsubscribe at any time.

Whether you collect, desire a home library of distinction, seek a personal gift for that special individual that will reflect thoughtfulness and make a lasting impression, or wish to decorate your shelves with fine leather bindings that display refined taste as well as discernment, we welcome the opportunity to assist you.

Thank you for stopping in. We hope to see you again soon.
