About meI am a rare book dealer and collector. I am also a recovering attorney. Many years ago, my father told me that he did not care what I did with my life as long as I enjoyed it and was good at it. I have, after several false starts, finally fulfilled his mandate. Working with books and booklovers is...well...not work. Best of all, I get to possess, for various periods of time, exeptional items that, while they fall outside my passions, are truly spectacular. I specialize in library and collection development, helping others conceptulize, design and build private libraries/collections (which allows me to immerse myself in areas outside my areas...I never cease to be amazed at what I find. I am having far too much fun.

About my libraryMy personal collections are focused on bibliomania, speculative fiction and early gothic horror. I have a growing passion, for better or worse, in early fine bindings.
