The Complete Traveller Antiquarian Bookstore grew out of The Complete Traveller Bookstore, the first travel bookstore in the United States. Owners Harriet and Arnold Greenberg were (and are) travel writers and Arnold, a life-long collector of antiquarian books. Many customers have combined their purchases of new guidebooks with editions of older classics. While the largest number of titles in the Antiquarian Bookstore are travel related, our collections include many first editions of fiction and literature, and even some unusual children's books. Those of you who have visited our store have seen one of the country's premier collections of authentic Baedekers. The small red-covered books are considered the first modern travel guides and are treasured for their great historic detail and fold out maps throughout. From the rare "Indien" to the prosaic "Central Italy," we have them all. We are proud of our rapidly expanding collection of rare titles dealing with the history, culture, peoples and communities of New York City and New York State. Other specialties include: The A&C Black Twenty Shilling series--books to far-flung destinations that are filled with scores of colorful illustrations. And, the state and city guides of the American Guide Series, a depression-era project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and written by many who later became renowned.

We have been selling antiquarian and collectible books on the internet since 2003. Our primary interest is in illustrated books, with the majority of our inventory being children's books. However we do include many 'non-children's' or adult books where the illustrations or quality of the book are particularly special. Within the children's books we carry many of the golden age illustrators, such as Louis Wain, Anne Anderson, Mabel Lucie Attwell and Kate Greenaway. We also have a good selection of the collectible publishers, such as Nister, Tuck, Warne and Nelson. If your 'collection interest' isn't found with the search facility, please contact us and we may be able to locate what you are looking for manually. The Little Book Store also holds a good stock of pop-up, movable and panorama books. Within this category there are some very nice Nister, Bookano and Kubasta editions. Whilst the majority of our books tend to be pre 1960's several of our pop-ups are newer than this, capturing some of the more modern paper engineering artists. The most important thing is that we have a genuine interest in all of our books and we are very keen to share this with you. It is extremely important to us that our customers are pleased with their purchases and the level of service that they receive from The Little Book Store. So we hope that you enjoy looking through our book catalogues and we would be delighted to provide you with that book or books that you are looking for.
We also have a brick-and-mortar store! Visit us in:
