The Rare Books Boutique (Antiquarian Room)
The Rare Books Boutique is open Wednesday-Sunday from 10am-5pm.
Monday and Tuesday the room is open by appointment only.
We have rare and scarce titles in practically all subjects, especially including Western Americana, Native Americana, Art, Mystery, Science & Technical books, and World History.
Once known as the Antiquarian Room, we have set aside a portion of the new store for our special collection of titles that are old, rare and worth a pretty penny. The Rare Book Boutique contains dozens of special collections, first editions and collectible printings. For the best experience in the Boutique, stop by when there's plenty of time to browse, let Maureen know what you're interested in, and prepare to be dazzled by the selections. Be sure to bring your credit card, though, because these books are not for the budget minded. These are tomes for the collectors' shelves.
You can now search, browse, and even purchase Page 1's complete selection of rare books from anywhere in the world via our online storefront at AbeBooks. Please visit us at the link below and share with other book aficionados!
