Located in a charming 1930's Carmel-stone building in historic downtown Monterey, since 1995 Carpe Diem Fine Books has offered a discriminating selection of out-of-print, and out of the ordinary books in all fields - with a special emphasis on the history and literature of California and the West. More than a bookshop, we also feature art and collectibles of the Monterey area.
We are open 12:00 to 6:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday and can generally arrange to be here at other times if more convenient for you, so be sure to visit the next time you are in the area.
All items are offered subject to prior sale and shipped subject to approval, but notification of return must be made within ten days and returns made promptly. New customers are asked to prepay, or supply ABAA references. Postage and insurance charges are billed to domestic orders; international orders are shipped by air mail, with full charges billed. Payment may be made by check or bank draft; we also accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard and PayPal. Institutions can be invoiced according to their requirements.
7.50% sales tax will be charged California residents.
