Anthology Booksellers is an independent, used bookstore specializing in Used, Out of Print and Rare Books in most fields. We were previously operating under the name of Acequia Booksellers in Albuquerque, NM and have recently relocated to Portland, OR. We operate online and by appointment. Our website contains over 9000 titles, less than half the total inventory in our inventory.
With a major focus on books in Literature, Arts and the Humanities, we have strong collections in the areas of Music including Jazz, Folk, Classical and World Music; Dance, Drama, Southwest History, and Western and General Americana, Anthropology and Archeology (including a large selection of Mayan and Meso-American studies), Travel, Folklore, Native American Arts and History, Classical Studies including books in Greek and Latin, Eastern and Western Religion, Metaphysics, Philosophy, Science and Mathematics, Architecture, and many rare and interesting titles in various other subject areas.
Within our Art section, we have large subsections dealing with Art History, Regional Art, Art Monographs, Art Catalogs, Art Biographies, Avant-garde, Art Criticism and Art Technique. Within out Literature section, we have large subsections of Poetry, Literary Magazines and Chapbooks, Fiction, , Essays and Criticism, Literary Biography, Mysteries, Modern First Editions and Signed editions.
For that special gift, we also carry many special editions, including Folio Society, Limited Editions Club and Easton Press. We are always happy to look at books which you might be interested in selling, whether you have one book or a collection. Give us a call and we will set up an appointment. Looking for an out-of-print title... give us a call.
