Rare books, first editions, modern literature, art, poetry, history, literary criticism, scholarly/academic, antiquarian, leather bound sets, uncorrected proofs, and of course our much loved and sought after general stock.
Such a satisfying experience for anyone who loves spending an afternoon looking through floor-to-ceiling stacks of used, scholarly books. With new books coming in every day and a basement full of older and on sale books, it really does not get better--nor more affordable--than Any Amount of Books.
