Southern New England Antiquarian Booksellers

Welcome to Southern New England Antiquarian Booksellers!

SNEAB was born in 2014, as an expanded incarnation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island Antiquarian Booksellers, which began in 1976. Southern New England Booksellers encompasses Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

We include open shops, and others who sell by appointment, mail, catalog, online or at book fairs. Members offer early, modern, collectible, rare, scholarly, fine and used books, manuscripts, ephemera, prints, maps, autographs, postcards and photographs in a wide range of specialties.

Most members purchase books and related materials; we invite you to contact any member to discuss selling your collection. Many members offer appraisals, help with collection development and other services.

We invite all engaged in selling antiquarian or used books and ephemera in Connecticut, Massachusetts or Rhode Island to apply for membership. Contact any officer for more information. Click here for a membership application.
