The organization's members include bookselling firms founded as early as 1825. Our booksellers offer books from the 16th through the 21st Centuries, plus broadsides, maps, manuscripts, prints and ephemera. You can find an index of specialties on this site. Many of our members also purchase books and other material, and you are invited to contact them directly.

Some members also offer services such as appraisals, book searches or collection development assistance to individuals and institutions; and some issue occasional lists or catalogues. The listings in our directory include booksellers who conduct business in open or group shops, by appointment, and by mail order. All members subscribe to the organization's Code of Ethics.
