Sanctuary Books maintains a varied inventory from all periods of printing, with a strong selection of original manuscript material, and unique book creations that date from before Gutenberg up until, and including, contemporary artists’ books.
We are members of the A.B.A.A. (Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America) and the I.L.A.B. (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers), and we exhibit at a number of book fairs throughout the year. You can keep up with us on our website, and we also maintain a presence on Instagram.
Sanctuary Books was established by Daniel Wechsler in 2001, following a seven year run as a partner and founding member of Book Ark on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. We currently maintain a small gallery space on the Upper East Side, where we are open by appointment only. We welcome the opportunity to purchase new inventory, whether individual titles of interest, or whole libraries, and we are happy to assist in the acquisition of particular titles, or in the development of larger collections. Please feel free to reach out to us with any inquiry, and thanks for your interest.
