About Us

What Sets Us Apart

Having started out as book collectors ourselves, we pride ourselves on our personal service to our customers. We work together with our customers to identify materials of interest, using our extensive historical training.

Customer Service

Our goal is 100 percent customer satisfaction. We are dedicated to accurate descriptions and exceptional communication with our customers. If you notify us within 7 days that you are not satisfied with your purchase, we will refund your purchase price when you return the item in the condition in which it was sold.
