About Us

About Pangloss Books:

Our book business is called Pangloss Books , which was for many decades located across the street from  Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

The London times described it as "the finest scholarly antiquarian bookstore in America", 

which may have been an exaggeration, but certainly reflected our intent!  

We are now removed to Paris and Tuscany, where we spend the vast portion of our time.

We are VERY active buyers and are fortunate enough

to have steady sources of books and manuscripts developed over many decades.

We no longer maintain a retail location  & .

over 90% of our books and manuscripts are sold by private treaty.


Always Interesting. Always Something New To Discover!

Everyday is an adventure. Who knows what we'll find next? We'll be sure to let you know!

Why Buy From Us?

We have been participating in  the antiquarian, rare book world for decades and during that time we have cultivated many sources for fresh to the market material. We sell only genuine, original material. NO copies or reproductions of any kind.
