Garrett Scott

Garrett Scott’s first encounter with rare books occurred when he took a student job at Stanford University’s Special Collections library. He quickly fell in love with the rare book world and became determined to make a career of it. Garrett worked for ABAA member John Crichton’s Brick Row Book Shop for seven years before grew up a collector (non-book). Each new collection opened a new door on the world for him, and his enthusiasm kept him moving through them until he encountered rare books in the special collections of Stanford Library. He learned the trade working at Brick Row, and established his own book business in 1998. Garrett operates out of Ann Arbor, MI and specializes in First Editions in 19th & Early 20th Century Eccentric Religious Movements, Popular Entertainments, Literature and Americana, Books & Pamphlets Bought and Sold. ABAA Member since 2004. Interviewed by Michael Ginsberg on April 5, 2014 at the New York International Antiquarian Book Fair.
