About

Jim Anderson Books is a bookstore specializing in serving North American libraries, archives, and museums. We also deal internationally with institutions and individuals.

We offer a wide range of out-of-print, scarce, and rare books, ephemera, and private archival collections of papers (letters, scholarly materials, manuscripts, diaries) and photographs.

We are the leading North American bookstore for Icelandic language imprints published in North America and early Canadian cookery books and ephemera.

We buy books within Canada, the U.S., and Europe. When feasible, we will travel to view collections of interest, particularly in our areas of specialization.

We are also active in appraising collections for university archives, other institutions, and individuals.
