Since 1997 we have been members of the Midwest Antiquarian Booksellers Association (MWABA) and exhibited at their Chicago fairs as well as at Chicago’s annual Printer’s Row Book Fair and the 57th Street Children’s Book Fair. The vast majority of our 25,000-book stock may be viewed by appointment at our private premises. See our Location and Hours page for information. We buy books at competitive prices.
Out stock is varied and of high quality, comprised mainly of hardcover first editions in the best available condition for their age. Our prices vary, and are consistently lower than what you see elsewhere, and we offer periodic discounts, and will consider reasonable offers for our higher-priced books. If you sell to us, we will usually travel within a 50-mile radius to view your books at no charge, with free removal if we buy. Come and visit us for a quiet, pleasant hour of browsing in our spacious book quarters.
