Founded in 1981, our bookstore trades primarily in scholarly titles on classical studies and archaeology.

Our Autumn 2014 Catalog of Used Books on Classics and Archaeology is available.  It includes approximately 600  titles on ancient history, archaeology, art, and literature, ranging from the Bronze Age to the early Middle Ages. It is strong in prehistoric Greece and the Aegean, classical historiography, and Late Antiquity.  Recent scholarship predominates, but there is some attractive antiquarian material. 

You may browse the catalog, including some illustrations, by using the link alongside labeled "Current Catalog" or view a text-only version of the entire list by clicking the link below.
