It’s All About the Adventure
My love for books started when I worked for a local bookseller, but I really fell in love when I attended my first book auction and have been hooked ever since. I started Wiggins Fine Books to learn more and explore the field of antiquarian books and have been attending auctions, estate sales, book fairs, and visiting institutions for over ten years. I love it more each day!
Sales & Acquisitions
I buy & sell old and rare books. My specialties include books, antique maps, prints and ephemera of an antiquarian and collectible nature. I am interested in single items and whole collections.
I have truly learned to appreciate fine press books through handling the wonders of the Kelmscott Press and many others at the book auction. My other areas of interest include Americana, fine bindings, illustrated books, signed books, and in general anything with cachet such as historical significance.
Mark your calendars:
