John Howell for Books specializes in California books and ephemera, fine press, miniature books, the history of printing and books, fine press, and artists books. Pre-Covid, I offered my books at my website and at 5 or 6 west coast book fairs a year. I also distribute lists through email which include first offers for new material, so sign up for lists on my website, https://www.johnhowellforbooks.com. I am always looking to buy books in my specialties.
Knuf Rare books was founded in the 1950s by Frits Knuf in the Netherlands. After an apprenticeship with Frits I took over the firm in 1996 which we then moved to France in 2001 where we are still based. The business is run from our home in Lavardin, one of the most beautiful villages of France located in the Loire Valley, that can easily be reached from Paris. Visitors are most welcome, but by appointment please. I am interested in the History of the Book and have a good inventory of rare and uncommon printed books, ephemeral items, prints and manuscripts from the incunable period to the twentieth century. My stock is especially strong in early auction- and library catalogues, type specimens, continental printer’s and engravers manuals, calligraphy manuals. Another interest is early continental architecture books and early art auction catalogues. Every year I issue two fully illustrated and annotated printed catalogues that are sent out upon request. In addition to that I also send out short email lists every week with a selection of books about books from our stock. And of course, I exhibit at several major international book fairs, such as New York, Boston and Paris. We work mainly with institutional customers, and are happy to discuss special institutional requirements. I adhere strictly to the professional standards and code of conduct of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers and the Syndicat national de la Librairie Ancienne et Moderne (SLAM), and the Compagnie Nationale des Experts (CNE) to which I belong. I have been an international rare book dealer for over 25 years and am a member of the Nederlands Genootschap van Bibliofielen. If you want to buy or sell single books or whole collections, have an expert valuation or if would just like some advice, please do not hesitate to contact me.

New Castle, Delaware, United States
Oak Knoll Books was founded in 1976 by Bob Fleck, a chemical engineer by training, who let his hobby get the best of him. Somehow making oil refineries more efficient using mathematics and computers paled in comparison to the joy of handling books. Oak Knoll Press, the second part of the business, was established in 1978 as a logical extension of Oak Knoll Books. Oak Knoll Books is a thriving company that maintains an inventory of about 20,000 titles. Our main specialties are books about bibliography, book collecting, book design, book illustration, book selling, bookbinding, bookplates, children's books, Delaware books, fine press books, forgery, graphic arts, libraries, literary criticism, marbling, papermaking, printing history, publishing, typography & type specimens, and writing & calligraphy - plus books about the history of all of these fields.

I specialize in printed books and manuscripts in the humanities, with a special emphasis on the quirky, unusual and the beautiful. My stock is particularly strong on the European Enlightenment and the early industrial revolution, its philosophy, impact on commerce and everyday life, technological developments, and view of women.I am also interested in the practical production of books and the distribution texts, and thus offer printer's and engraving manuals, books on copyright laws or censorship, and early library or publisher's catalogues. I issue regular illustrated and fully annotated catalogues and exhibit a major international book fairs.
