Our stock ranges from quality paperbacks and hardbacks, with strength in literature and history, to rare books in many fields. We are well-stocked with children's books, modern first editions, Michigan history, Americana, travel and exploration, art, architecture, music and photography. Please inquire about our large collection of books on polar exploration. 

We participate in a number of antiquarian book fairs across the country and organize the Ann Arbor Antiquarian Book Fair, a benefit for University of Michigan's Clements Library, which we hope to restart in May of 2021.

Jay Platt is an experienced and knowledgeable bookseller. He is a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).
