Where you can find thousands of rare, used and out of print books

Free Shipping by Media Mail or Discounted Priority/ International Mail
Free Gift Wrap (upon request) - Reusable Cloth or Traditional Paper

We specialize in the sale of first editions of twentieth century literature, with an emphasis on women authors, African American literature and history (or Black studies), Native American authors, Latin American (including Chicano/a and Latino/a authors and works in translation) and Hawaiian and South Pacific islands  - plus mystery, detective & suspense fiction, science fiction, fantasy & horror, poetry & literary journals, Western Americana,  and children's & illustrated books.

While the books we offer range from the rare and antiquarian to collectible first editions to just plain used or second-hand reading copies, we try to focus on uncommon out-of-print books, and we have a large selection of first books, of new books by small press publishers,  and books by authors who are wonderful writers, but less frequently collected. Most of our books are hardcover modern first editions, although we also stock vintage sci-fi and mystery paperback originals (pbo) as well as digest and pulp magazines. We also have thousands of signed and inscribed books, and trade paperback uncorrected proof and advanced review copies for sale.

We have over  50,000 used books in stock, although only 25% 40% are searchable on-line so far. Please let us know if you are looking for a book or author whom you do not see listed, or if you have questions about any of our books.  Whether you are searching for just one book or interested in building a collection, we pride ourselves on our individualized and careful customer attention.
