Welcome to Bauman Rare Books

For over 40 years, Bauman Rare Books has been bringing the world of rare book collecting to the public. After years of exhibiting at top antiques shows throughout the country, we opened our first gallery in Philadelphia on Chestnut Street in 1982. In 1989 we expanded to New York City, first at the historic Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and then to our current Madison Avenue gallery, which opened in 1999.

In 2008 we launched our newest location at the Palazzo in Las Vegas. Today, with three locations in three great cities, we can say with some pride that literally thousands of people have been introduced to rare book collecting through us.

New York Gallery

Bauman Rare Books has been a landmark in New York for more than twenty years, first in the lobby at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, and for the past fifteen years on Madison Avenue, between 54th and 55th Streets.

On display is a constantly-changing and extraordinary assortment of over 4000 books and documents in a wide range of subject areas. Whether you are an advanced collector, a novice interested in starting to collect, or someone simply in search of an unusual gift, our friendly and knowledgeable sales associates can help you find something special.

Please contact us if you would like to make a special visit to the gallery. We have many new pieces of inventory that we have added to our shelves and we can’t wait for you to see. As always, we’ll do our best to make sure your visit is a pleasant one!
