Welcome to the sub-atomic home of John W. Doull, Bookseller.
Please search or browse our inventory of hard-to-find, out-of-print, used, and rare books. At present there are over 60,000 titles listed, with many now having accompanying portraits.
As of November 20th, we cannot guarantee posted shipments will arrive at their destinations by Christmas.
For local customers, please phone or email us before coming in to view items listed here, as much of our website stock is stored upstairs, and may require some time in tracking down.
MAY 2020: WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT BRINGING ANY MORE BOOKS INTO THE STORE UNTIL THE PANDEMIC SETTLES. PLEASE DO NOT BRING IN BOOKS FOR CREDIT AT THIS TIME.
The exception is donations of useful books (several of which we have gratefully received in the last while) which have helped the cause.
We have been open all along and are keeping to distance and hygiene guidelines. For payment cash or debit are preferred.
If you can't find what you like please fill out our search form and we will search our off-line inventory (another 100,000 or so books) for you. Gift certificates are also available in any amount you wish and can be mailed to the happy recipient of your choice.
We also offer appraisal services.
Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.
