John J. DeMarco

A lifelong bibliophile, John DeMarco was determined to have a career as a bookseller. He finally made the leap in 1971 after coming away from an auction with more books than he could reasonably store in his home and opened the Lyrical Ballad Bookstore. Lyrical Ballad Bookstore operated out of Saratoga Springs, NY, and specialized in Children’s Books, Horses, Illustrated Books, Literature, Sporting Books, Folklore, Dance, Music, and Art. ABAA Member from 1978-2019. Interviewed by Michael Ginsberg at the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair.
