  • Why do you specialize in medical books?
    As a physician & pathologist my education, career, and experience in medicine gives me an understanding of the contents of antiquarian medical books not available to other rare book dealers.
  • Is it true you have three cyborg dinosaurs in your home?
    Yes, unfortunately that rumor is true, but we keep the books well protected from them.
