Who We Are

We have been in business for 43 years – first as John Freas Rare Books and since 1977 as Tamerlane Books.  We had a shop in Bryn Mawr, PA, but have worked from our home for many years now in a library-like setting.  We are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers.
