More about this bookseller

PRB&M/SessaBks, located within Philadelphia's historic Arsenal, occupies an equally historic (and beautiful) building dating from 1820. PRB&M has been buying, selling, and appraising antiquarian books and manuscripts in the areas of Early Printed Books, Substantive Manuscripts, U.S. and Latin Americana, Mexico & New World Languages, Hispanica, Histories & the History of Ideas, Travels, Cookery, Law, Religion, & Bibles (All Antiquarian) since 1984. We have been members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) since the year following. Other references, local to you *almost* no matter where you are, can be supplied among the Rare Book and Special Collections librarians who have been our longtime clients.
