James Cummins Bookseller Inc.


James Cummins Bookseller Inc.
Founded in 1978 by James Cummins, the firm has grown to include two New Jersey locations as well as the main store at 699 Madison Avenue (between 62nd and 63rd Streets) in New York City. The Madison Avenue store is a seventh-floor oasis for book-lovers, a quiet and pleasantly furnished book room with a carefully chosen, expertly catalogued and broad-based selection of fine and rare books, autographs, manuscripts, and works of art. We have built notable private collections for American and international clients. Our stock is always changing, and our steady input from private buying and public auctions assures our clients of new surprises (and temptations!) at each visit.

Our stock covers a wide range of collecting interests, with particular emphasis in the following fields: British and American Literature, Sporting Books, Private Press and Illustrated Books, Nineteenth-Century Color Plate Books, Americana, Travel, Sets and Fine Bindings, History, and Authors’ Manuscripts and Letters. Our catalogued inventory exceeds 50,000 titles, much of which can be searched on the internet. In addition, our New Jersey warehouse contains over 400,000 books in all subject areas. We might have the books you’re looking for.

The Mill at Pottersville, in an historic pre-Revolutionary building, features a wide selection of sets and decorative bindings, books, maps, prints, original art and collectibles, as well as American and European antiques. Art shows and exhibitions are held regularly, and we will be pleased to let you know when they occur. The Mill is also open by appointment.
