Oak Knoll Books and Press, a Small, Specialist Delaware Bookseller Featuring Rare Books and New Publications

Recommended Posts

A wonderful bookseller and small press, Oak Knoll is located in New Castle, Delaware, and does business chiefly, I believe, via their website, which you can visit HERE. They specialize in "books about books", with an extensive catalogue encompassing the history of printing, print-making, bibliography, literary forgery (my favorite!), book binding, book design, typography, calligraphy, and lots more, featuring collectible old books and new books that they publish themselves. I've done business with them quite a few times, and have nothing but praise for their business practices, their mastery of their field, and their care and feeding of their customers.

I've just received my latest purchase from them, "Blake and Tradition" by Kathleen Raine, published by Princeton University in 1968, in a beautifully bound, lavishly illustrated two volume edition in slip-case. Oak Knoll sold this to me for the remarkably decent price of $125, and packaged it for shipment so beautifully that I almost wept as I unwrapped it.
