Welcome to McBride Rare Books

McBride Rare Books specializes 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 several decades of experience in the field, we are pleased to offer a highly-curated inventory, as well as services such as auction previewing and bidding.

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.
