Welcome to McBride Rare Books

Here at McBride Rare Books we specialize in American history, focusing on unique and eclectic materials such as archives, broadsides, vernacular photography, and interesting or unusual imprints. That said, we consider ourselves to be Americana omnivores, and we are always seeking to expand our horizons.  With over a decade of experience in the field, we are pleased to offer book and manuscript appraisal services, auction previewing and bidding, as well as a highly-curated inventory.

While we do not have an open shop, we are happy to entertain guests by appointment.  Currently located in New Haven, Ct., we will be relocating to New York City in the spring of 2019.

If you have a book or a collection you’d like to sell, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  If it seems the item is not for us, we’ll make every effort to refer you to another bookseller who might be interested.
