Store Description: We have been professional booksellers since 1973, with an open shop (M-F 10-5, Sat. 11-5, Sun. and other hours, by chance or appointment) since 1983. We are proud to stock more than 20,000 hardback rare, scarce, and out-of-print books on all subjects and 3500 lithographed or engraved antiquarian maps and prints from the 16th century to present, displayed in six charming, clean, well-lit showrooms. All very selectively acquired to serve readers, collectors, scholars, and institutions worldwide who cherish material of inherent and lasting interest and value, on all subjects. Binding, repair, appraisals, and searches offered. About two miles west of Longwood Gardens, near Winterthur, and the Brandywine Museum. One of "the best booksellers I have come into contact with."
