Welcome to the home of Michael R Thompson Booksellers. We have books from the 15th to the 21st century and feature a stock strong in literature, history, Western philosophy, history of science, fine printing, and art. We are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of American and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers and adhere to their high ethical standards.
Please search or browse our inventory of fine, antiquarian, and scholarly books. Use the links to peruse our recent catalogues, see descriptions of new arrivals, and learn more about our business and our services.
Our office is located in Los Angeles on West Third Street, between the Beverly Center and Farmer's Market. Though we gave up an open shop after more than thirty years, we welcome serious customers and dealers. Many of our less expensive books are located at home, so you may want to call us ahead of time to insure that the book you want to see will be available. We are normally open from 10 to 6 Monday through Saturday.
We do appraisals for income tax and insurance purposes, as well as for personal interest. We are always interested in purchasing individual books and libraries in our areas of interest.
Please feel free to write or call us about your book collecting needs.
