Since 1980 we have bought and sold used and rare books, manuscripts, broadsides, ephemera, maps, photographs, and prints. Our subject concentrations are in regional Americana, particularly the South, African-Americana, and the American Civil War, as well as English and American literature, fishing, hunting, other sports, and books about books. Ensuring variety, we have a mix of antiquarian material in other fields, such as the arts, science, medicine, economics, and law. At irregular intervals, we issue catalogues. Visitors making appointments are welcome in our office as are enquiries from those selling material such as we stock.

We issue printed catalogues and offer them through Dropbox or send them as PDF email attachments on request.
All items are offered subject to prior sale and guaranteed. Orders found to be unsatisfactory are returnable within ten days of receipt and with prior notification. We accept Visa & MasterCard, checks on American banks, and international wire transfers if previously agreed upon -- payment in advance except for those well-known to us and for most institutions. International shipping is by air and charged at cost. Within the U.S. we prefer U.S. Postal Service Priority ($7, for one item) but when requested or preferable, Media Rate ($5, for one item); however, shipment by other carriers and shipment of oversized books and multi-volume sets will be at cost.
