About Us

We buy and sell fine and collectible books of all kinds, with an emphasis on Literature, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery, Children's Fiction, Philosophy, and History. Although we are interested in books in these areas from all periods, our primary focus is on modern first editions, that is, first editions from the early twentieth century to the present.  We currently sell via mail order or by chance or by appointment at our shop in Madison, WI.  On this site you can find our latest catalogues, search our inventory, and place orders online using a secure checkout process.  Please see our Terms page for details regarding payment options, shipping, and returns.

We regularly purchase books in our areas of specialization, both individual items and entire collections.  If you have a book or a collection you wish to sell, please contact us at info@eveningstarbooks.net.
