About Us

The Book Lair deals with rare and/or interesting items in many fields with a focus on 19th and 20th century illustrated books, particularly by Arthur Rackham and Gustav Doré. We are particularly interested in unique cook books, children’s books, Californiana, and miniatures.

We also buy and sell ephemera, photography, manuscript material, diaries and letter archives, and business archives in any field. If it tells a strong story, we're interested.
