Welcome to John Howell for Books!


John Howell will be traveling to Seattle for the Seattle Antiquarian Book Fair, beginning Thursday October 9, 20014.  Books listed on this website are still available for purchase, but please note that any books ordered will not ship until Tuesday, October 14, 2014.  Thank you for your understanding. 

I have two Book Fair lists for your perusal.  These lists were issued September 9th, 2014, but there are still quite a few items left.  For the most part, these books are not available on the website.  The first list is California-themed, at 20 pages, with 37 items:

The second focuses on Fine Press and Artist's Books, it is also 20 pages with 45 items:

I am buying approximately 500 volumes about Typography, including the History of the Book.  At this point I have about 200 titles inventoried.  For those intrepid souls who would like an early look at the latest finds, I have prepared the following PDF, which lists in columns the Inventory Numbers, Author's Last Name, Title of the books, and a retail Price.  All books are very good or better condition, most of those with dust-jackets have archival mylar protectors for the jackets, and most of those without jackets have mylar jackets provided.  If you find anything of interest, do not hesitate to let me know your interest.  When I pick the books for you, if there are any significant defects, I'll let you know about those before we confirm your order.  The list:
