Teri Osborn graduated with a Master’s of Library Science from Indiana University in 2005, having specialized in rare books. She began her career as a rare book librarian at the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, Ma., moving to the University of Alberta in Edmonton, and finally landing at the William Reese Company in 2008.  After nearly ten years with the premier Americana dealer in the country, she is delighted to strike out on her own to co-found McBride Rare Books.

He earned a Master’s of Library and Information Science from the University of Texas in 2013, followed by a Master’s degree in the History of the Book from St. Andrews University in 2015. James joined the Americana Department at the William Reese Company shortly thereafter, and co-founded McBride Rare Books in 2018.
