About Us


After owning two successful bookstores in San Francisco, Adobe and Chelsea Bookshops, Bryan and Christine moved back east in 2003 to a tiny 200+ year-old farmhouse named Appledore just north of NYC.

Bryan was proud to join the Antiquarian Bookseller's Association of America in 2004 (ABAA interview) and has been exhibiting ever since at annual ABAA New York, Boston and California rare book fairs.  In addition to bookselling, Christine is a professional librarian and archivist.
