About Breck Bartholomew Natural History Books

Specializing in antiquarian natural history books. Breck Bartholomew Natural History books, formerly Bibliomania, originally opened in 1995 as a herpetological bookstore. In 2016 my focus broadened to cover all natural history subjects as well as some related sciences, but narrowed to just rare and antiquarian books.
