About Dark and Stormy Night Books

Dark and Stormy Night Books is an online-only rare and antiquarian bookstore, founded by Alasdair and Alexandra Johnson in 2005. Alasdair is a native of Edinburgh with a colorful mercantile family history including the salvage of shipwrecks off the English coast, a Portuguese port dynasty, and even a revolutionary relative transported to Australia in the eighteenth century. His partner, Alexandra, is a third-generation book dealer, whose appreciation of the well-printed page stems from the clackety-clack of the smallest of small press workshops operating from the tack-room of the family barn. She is a graduate in history and art history from Bowdoin College, with a particular interest in the Far East and the China Trade, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and the British Arts & Crafts Movement. She also spent some years working for a nationally known early-American antiques dealer. They now make their home in historic Newburyport, on the Massachusetts coast. Specialties include: pre-twentieth century Gothic literature, early science-fiction and magic, weird tales and ghost stories, 17th century astrological works, Scottish fiction and history, sagas and folklore, early scientific works, William Morris and the English Arts & Crafts movement. We also have a good selection of general fiction, history, plays, poetry, and items of maritime interest. Other interests include unique and finely bound volumes, as well as small-press and illustrated books, photography, art and architecture.
