Stoutamyer Fine Books


A longtime AbeBooks seller, Rick Stoutamyer from Middleburg in Virginia, is profiled in his local paper.

“I was in a thrift shop in 1995 or 1996, and I found a book about stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall that included two original Chagall lithographs. I bought the book for $40, which is a lot of money for a thrift shop book,” he said. “I sold it a day later for $850 to another bookseller, and he sold it for $1,700 a week later. At that point, I got hooked. It’s like panning for gold. Anything can be anyplace at anytime.”
