We are independent scholars offering uncommon books, periodicals, and ephemera online from Berkeley, California, since 2001. Our emphasis is upon the overlooked, though any form of excellence is sought out and preserved.

A small selection from our inventory may be browsed online. Direct orders are welcome, as are orders through online resale sites. We also invite your queries and want lists.

We ship to customers worldwide with Paypal, Visa/MC, or US$ check/m.o. prepayment for direct orders. Institutional customers may contact us to arrange invoiced shipment.
