About this seller

That Rare Book Guy is a private book seller based in the Southeast, selling antiquarian and rare leather bound sets and important single volumes for nearly a decade. Initially exhibiting at shows throughout the US, from Beverly Hills to Baltimore, Minneapolis to Miami Beach and hundreds of great towns between, That Rare Book Guy has now been humbled by the power of the internet and is looking forward to making even more book lovers happy to have access. My name is Steven Martin and after years of responding to "Hey, aren't you that rare book guy..?", I am. I am proud to now also offer modern Signed First Editions, A Science Fiction Collection from a Gentleman, Fine Mid-Century Paperbacks, Esoteric Ephemera and more. A Member of GABA, and working towards IOBA and ABAA Membership, it is very important that I accurately describe my books, allow for returns, and act honestly and ethically. To me that just makes sense. I would also like to disclose that I am new to selling online and will make every effort to be the best online bookseller you have ever occasioned. That being said, I am bound to make a mistake, please allow me to fix it. I can be reached via, I look forward to hearing from you.
