About Us

Hamilton’s Rare Books and Antiques has been a full time, self-employed sole-proprietorship business since 1973. In the past 44 years, we had old book & antique shops for 27 years and since 2000 we have been operating by appointment and on the Internet. We have been selling on eBay since the mid-nineties with over 900 unsolicited “100% positive” feedbacks. Jack and Taylor Hamilton, father and son have worked together over the years, but now join together full time to expand our offerings and business with renewed enthusiasm.

Our collections are broad and encompassing, sometimes esoteric.

We welcome you to peruse our inventory.

We often consult with collectors, historians and archivists. We do appraisals. We are willing to consign special items or collections. We are especially interested in historical manuscripts, documents, books and artifacts.

We strive to give a clear and definitive description and you can always order with confidence knowing that you will receive exactly what we described or we will give you a full refund including postage.

We look forward to serving you.
