antiquarian & rare books
I collect and sell books that reflect my scholarly interests. As such, the titles in my catalogue tend to coalesce around the kindred themes of antiquarianism, curiosity, science, bibliography & book history.
I am based in Charlottesville, Virginia, where I am a Ph.D. student in Renaissance Literature, but my academic work and buying take me farther afield—primarily to New York, Europe and the UK. Visits & viewings can be arranged by appointment.
PAYMENT & SHIPPING
I accept payment by Mastercard, Visa, American Express, and Discover, as well as by check (drawn in dollars from a U.S. bank account), and Paypal. All credit card transactions are encrypted and processed securely via PayPal at no additional cost.
Books ship globally with very few exceptions. Standard domestic delivery is $5.00 per book, unless otherwise noted. Overnight and two-day shipping are available at standard rates. International shipping rates vary based on delivery method and the weight and size of the book. Books are shipped fully insured. Comprehensive insurance for some items will be provided at extra cost.
RETURNS & TERMS of SALE
All books are guaranteed as described and are sold subject to approval. Books may be returned within seven days of receipt in original condition for a full refund. All books listed on this site are subject to prior sale.
CONSIGNMENT, BUYING, & COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT
I buy books and collections of interest and can accept books on consignment at a mutually-established price. I offer collecting advice & brokering, cataloging expertise and collection development services. Please write to request additional information or to schedule a telephone conference.
