About Us

A little about Randall House

We deal in fine and rare books in many fields; this includes collectible books, limited edition books, and out-of-print books. From Shakespeare Folios to Carter's ABC for Book Collectors, from fine bindings to fine press books, from children's books to early Bibles, from incunabula to modern firsts, they are all part of what makes Randall House Rare Books the book collector's paradise.Randall House interior

In addition to books we deal in autographs, manuscripts, autograph letters, historical documents and ephemera. We always have a wonderful selection of paintings, etchings, works on paper, and sometimes sculpture, of renowned artists on display. You may search our inventory for books by author, by title, by key words, etc.

Our book lists are organized by authors and by subjects and span many different collecting areas. If you don't see an item you are looking for on our website, please call or email us, and we will respond promptly. We will gladly compile a list of our current stock in your field and email, or snail mail, it to you also.

You may order any item via our secure order page. We are constantly acquiring new items and selling from our stock, so please forgive us if an item listed has been sold. We try our best to keep the lists and inventory as current as possible. If you have a special need or want, do let us know. We will be pleased to discuss it with you, and to help you locate a copy. We also purchase books, individual books or whole libraries, as well as fine art, similar to what we show here.

Finally, we welcome suggestions from you how to improve this site for your enjoyment and usability.
Thank you for visiting.
