About us

Situated on Long Island's north shore, the business maintains a stock of approximately 2,000 titles of quality scholarly, scarce and out-of-print secondhand books in most fields. Approximately 1,200 of them are on this website for you to search. Click on the search button to the left or on the word search at the upper right of this page to see if we have listed what you are looking for. If you don't find your selection please click on the e-mail link at the top to let us know what you are in search of, or call the shop.

In business since 1972, founded and still operated by Michael and Mary Mart, the business is Suffolk County's oldest antiquarian book business. Except for a few Book Fairs a year on Long Island and in New York City, all sales are conducted on the internet.

From the beginning we have had and still have wonderful opportunities to buy and sell remarkable books; from single items to complete collections. Our proximity to the State University of New York at Stony Brook, just a few miles away, and to New York City, makes this area truly book country. And, as with most serious bookshops, we buy many more books than we can display at any one moment, so if there are books you are in search of please let us know (click on our email at top) and we will make every effort to find them among our stock still in storage.
