About Us

“Book collecting is a disease, the final stages, of which is opening your own bookstore!”

As my dear friend, mentor and fellow bookstore owner Joe De Salvo of Faulkner House Books in New Orleans said.

After a culmination of 25 years of collecting, we are now an open shop of over 12,000 books, [many of which are not listed online].

We hope you will come in to our shop and peruse our great selections or join us on our website for our inventory and regularly updated new acquisitions.

We buy books on History, Fiction, Biography and Poetry.

We don't buy textbooks, paperbacks, Book of the Month Club books, Reader's Digest books and encyclopedias.

We pay in cash, checks (for larger amounts) based on the value of the book and its condition and scarcity.
