Your Personal Bookseller
The material you'll find at Ruggles Books is more like a personal collection than an ordinary bookstore inventory. Each item has been carefully chosen for its interest, condition, and importance by a sole proprietor who, like you, is always looking for the must-have, never-seen-it-before thing. About once a month, catalogues are issued that focus on a particular topic, period, or genre. Whatever your specific collecting interests, you'll want to see these. Please note that titles are subject to prior sale; use the search box to check the availability of specific titles before ordering.
