About Laura's Rare Books

I began this business because of my love for books. A great part of my rare and first editions books are from my late Grandfather's massive collection that he spent his entire life hand picking. I am very selective about the books I choose to sell and my specialties include rare, out of print, first editions, children's books, Christmas Books, limited editions and unusual books. I take great care in providing personal attention to my book buyers with follow up E-mails to ensure the book was received in excellent condition and am always happy to send additional detailed photographs and answer any questions you may have.
