Balboa Books

I specialize in fine art books.

I have been in the used book business for over twenty years. I ran my own used bookshop for seven years and was one of the early adopters of selling on-line. I now only sell books on-line. My buying practice has always been to buy books at very good or better condition. I do not buy ex-library books or book club editions.
