Literature & Fine Books

We keep a large, and often eccentric, selection of books in our Literature department, including first editions of English-speaking authors of the 18th through 20th centuries, with particular emphasis on poetry, as well as some representation of Continental literature, both in translation and in the original editions.

We tend to subsume under the Literature rubric, and include in our Literature catalogues, such genres as fine printing, non-American social and political thought, Printing and the Mind of Man titles, non-Americana bibliography and reference, literary periodicals, modern illustrated books, and material which, in a number of instances, is much less readily categorized.

Inquiries about Literature matters should be directed to Terry Halladay:
