Welcome to the Antiquarian Book Shop Web Page  Founded By George Edward Chamberlain in 1963.

Founded in 1963 by George Chamberlain, The Antiquarian  "Rare Book" Shop has become a respected member of the Scottsdale Community. Growing over the years from a small book store in the Kiva Center to over 2300 sq ft on Scottsdale Road in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale.

George Chamberlain passed away on Jan. 19, 2005, leaving a vacant space in the heart of book lovers. While no one can match Mr Chamberlain's 42 years of expertise, we do promise to continue to bring interesting and exciting "scarce book" and "rare book" titles in the months and years ahead.

The shop is now owned and operated by Ann Bruce Chamberlain Maroe, George's daughter, who learned about "Rare and Unusual Books" at her father's knee. Ann also owns the Antiquarian of Bend "Book Store" in Bend, OR, and brings a new flair and style to the shop.

Oscar Bruce Chamberlain, George's son, will be sticking his head in from time to time bringing his wisdom as a PHD in History and professor at the University of Wisconsin au Claire.  He will be making sure that everything continues to be done the Chamberlain way.

Click the links at left to navigate our site. "The Shop" will take you to photos of the store. Browse and Search will bring you to our online inventory at the American Book Exchange. And click on the picture at the left to learn more about Ann Maroe, The Antiquarian's proprietor.


I'm afraid that there is no link for YOSHI, The "Rare Book" Dog who is now deceased.
