G. Curwen Books offers a carefully chosen selection of rare, scarce, and out-of-print books in collectible condition. We are experienced, professional booksellers, specializing in first printings of literary novels, mysteries, memoirs, plays, and poetry, and have sold books on ABE since May 1998. Our inventory always features a good number of first books by established authors and promising newcomers. We issue catalogues and exhibit at many major East Coast book fairs and at the yearly Bouchercon mystery convention. We take pride in our stock and guarantee our customers complete satisfaction or a full refund of purchase price and shipping costs.
A catholic selection of uncommon titles of interest to collectors in addition to literary and dramatic high points and books-into-film. Many of our books are signed or inscribed, including a number of presentation- and association copies. We welcome your want lists.
Detective novels, procedurals, livres noir... we stock virtually every variety of crime fiction except books featuring sleuthing cats. Our tastes range from locked room puzzles from the Golden Age by the likes of Carr and Rawson to the gritty contemporary realism of Connelly, Block, Burke and Pelecanos.
