About Borogove Books

Welcome to the storefront of Borogove Books. Lewis Carroll defines a borogove as "a thin shabby-looking bird with its feathers sticking out all round--something like a live mop." Our book-reading borogove, drawn by the late San Francisco Chronicle cartoonist Phil Frank (after John Tenniel's classic illustration from Through the Looking Glass) is the bookstore mascot. It expresses our sense of fun, without which surely nothing is worth doing. We have always emphasized quality rather than quantity in our listings. We have sought the books most valued by specialists and collectors, and have accepted only books that are in "very good" or better (mostly better) condition. These policies are good for business and make the bookstore a fun and interesting place to work--and also, we believe, a fun and interesting place to shop. We hope you'll agree!
