About the Bookseller

Having operated a shop in Toronto for almost 40 years, we are now a home-based business based in Welland, Ontario. We can see visitors by appointment. We specialize in literary first editions of mainly the 19th and 20th centuries, Canadiana, and literary Canadiana. We also have a good stock of select out of print, scarce, and rare non-fiction and antiquarian books in various fields. We do appraisals for a fee and welcome wants lists. We were established in 1974 and were for 40 years members of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of Canada and affiliated with the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. Shipping: for orders shipped to Canada we use Canada Post Expedited parcel, which is fairly fast and trackable. For most orders to the USA we now use the USPS. For overseas orders we use Canada Post small packet surface, or air if requested, but neither are trackable (tracked shipping is available at a higher cost). In some cases we use the USPS for overseas orders. Note: If you are viewing my catalogues at my storefront, please be advised that only a few of my books with pictures show. Most of my books online do not have pictures, but many do which abebooks has not made available in these dreadful "curated collections". I have many, many more books in these catalogues which you can browse at
