About Us

We buy and sell rare and antiquarian books and ephemera online from Sebastopol, California. We also sell at regional and virtual book fairs.

Our favorite items to hold and sell are either beautiful or informative. If we're lucky, they are both. Some of our interests are unique or odd ephemera: posters, broadsides, photos and letters; modern woodcuts & engravings, first editions in translation, poetry and women's rights. Our love of research often takes us on new journeys we never expected. That's why we find books and ephemera so extraordinary.

We have ephemera and books not yet online. Please contact us if you're searching for a book by title or in a certain subject.

Let us know if you have something that might interest us. We buy individual items and collections.

Jeanne was in business from 2004 to 2010, then returned to bookselling in 2021. She is a graduate of several Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminars (now CABS-Minnesota and held at St. Olaf College). A week-long seminar, CABS is often referred to as a "Boot Camp for Booksellers". HIGHLY recommended for booksellers, collectors, and librarians, or anyone considering entering these fields. 

Jeanne is assisted by Gary Adams, director of the photography, packing & shipping, and schlepping departments.
