About Us

The partners comprising Classic Books and Ephemera, Dr. Craig W. Horle and Laurie M. Wolfe, have been selling books and paper ephemera online for 20 years. Together we have over a half-century of experience working with rare books and manuscripts. The heart of our large and expanding book stock consists of 16th- to mid-19th-century works in English, French, and German in the areas of history, travel, the arts, and children's books.

We also sell manuscripts, deeds, maps, and printed ephemera of all periods and disciplines. Our business is exclusively online and therefore our descriptions are specific and detailed and always accompanied by photographs. A significant portion of our stock has not yet been cataloged online, so we welcome want lists and answer all inquiries promptly.
