More about this bookseller
I established Biomed Rare Books in 2015 as an internet-based bookshop specializing in rare and antiquarian books and papers in medicine and the life sciences. I have been collecting and studying printed works in these fields for many years, an activity that has informed my practice of medicine and my own biological research. My bibliographical expertise has been developed by participating in a number of courses at Rare Book School, a unique institution located at the University of Virginia, and also by attending the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar, a boot camp for antiquarian booksellers. In listing books and papers for sale on my website, www.biomedrarebooks.com, I try to describe the significance of their texts, to point out their cultural significance, and to highlight their value as physical objects reflecting the historical and geographical circumstances of their creation. I am particularly interested in annotated copies and inscribed copies. Where the evidence is available, I try to provide relevant information about both the original and later owners of the books in my inventory, and to comment on any annotations they have made in books formerly in their possession.
