Since 2004, I have bought and sold important or unusual books, ephemera, and other cultural detritus in all fields. Specialties include modern and contemporary literature; The Beats; poetry; popular culture; esoterica; artists' books; the avant-garde in all its various guises (music to film, art to dance); small journals and magazines (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); letters, manuscripts, and archives; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books.
I am a graduate (English/Writing) of Loyola College (Baltimore, MD) and hold a MFA (English/Poetry) from the University of Iowa Writers Workshop. I have attended Rare Book School at both the University of Virginia and UCLA. I am also a graduate of the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar (2006), which I attended on a scholarship from the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA). This summer I am pleased to be returning to CABS as the visiting specialty dealer.
In addition to the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America, I am a member of the Independent Online Booksellers' Association, the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, the Washington Area Booksellers Association, the Washington Rare Book Group, The Baltimore Bibliophiles, The Fine Press Book Association, and The Bibliographical Society of America.

IN SITU: Situationism & Its Influence 1957-2010 (Part 1) I'm pleased to announce our latest e-catalogue (#11.5) entitled IN SITU and dedicated entirely to Situationism. This is our largest catalogue to date (almost 200 items), so we're issuing it in two parts. Part one consists of seventy-five items on Situationism proper: Guy Debord, Raoul Vaneiegem, the INTERNATIONALE SITUATIONNISTE, various sections of the SI, as well as histories of the movement. Part two, forthcoming in a couple of weeks, will chronicle (in more than 100 items) the subsequent influence of Situationism.
Catalogue Eleven Our latest catalogue — focusing on archives, collections, photographs, manuscripts, albums, scrapbooks, and other primary materials — is now available. Over sixty items illustrated in full color, highlights include: the archive of storyteller and folklorist Diane Wolkstein; a collection of letters and related materials from modern dance pioneer Ted Shawn; several holograph set-lists from several early Hüsker Dü performances; a substantial run of the prisoner-produced magazine The Angolite, with related correspondence; the research and publication archive of R.A. Wobbe's bibliography of Graham Greene; a beautiful archive of over 600 images from the Scranton Lace Company; hundreds of pages of White House memoranda and related documents from LBJ pollster Fred Panzer; a rare original photo album documenting the construction of the Madeira-Mamore Railroad by official project photographer Dana B. Merrill. Plus much more.
