Since 1975, the William Reese Company has been serving collectors and a large international clientele of private and public institutions to acquire rare books and manuscripts and develop their collections.

With a cataloged inventory of over 40,000 items and a total inventory of over 65,000 items, we are one of the leading experts in American and world travel and maintain a large and diverse collection of literary first editions and antiquarian books from the 18th to the 21st century.

We regularly publish extensive catalogues in our areas of expertise and are able to make smaller listings on specific topics with relative ease upon request. We kindly ask that you send us an enquiry about our print catalogue and be as precise as possible about the area where you collect. You can contact us at coreese@reeseco.com.

We also occasionally publish works related to the Americana bibliography, and we now provide a list of some print titles, including standard terms of trade for bulk orders, and a list of recommended Americana references (some of which we can source from stock).

We are active buyers in our areas of interest, from individually better pieces to entire collections. While we do not maintain open premises, some of our inventory can only be viewed by prior appointment during the work week. We are located in two adjacent 19th century brownstone buildings in downtown New Haven, on the edge of Yale University’s historic campus. We recently expanded another building in Hamden, Connecticut.

All materials provided on this website must be sold in advance and sent after approval, but must be returned within ten days and returned promptly and seriously. Require new customers to prepay or provide ABAA/ILAB references. Shipping and insurance will be charged for domestic orders, and international orders will be shipped by airmail or courier at our discretion. Payment can be made by check, money order or cashier’s order, and we also accept Visa and MasterCard.
