Honey & Wax Booksellers offers great works of literature: rare first printings, beautiful and curious editions, copies with surprising stories of their own. We handle unique books, striking books, books with no downloadable equivalent.

Our name is inspired by a nineteenth-century epigram: “use books as bees use flowers." We like to see books, like flowers, in the field: on nightstands, in backpacks, given to friends, shared with children, passed across the bar at last call. And we like to hear readers buzzing: “You have to read this." “I marked a page." “This made me think of you."

Don't be afraid to open our books, don't lock them away for safekeeping. Use books as bees use flowers, and pollinate the world.
