Welcome to

ben.buys.books

Welcome to the home of ben.buys.books where you will find a large and eclectic selection of historical, decorative and fine art engravings, book plates, woodcuts and photographs salvaged from broken and lesser books. Browsing through the categories one will find related and sometimes rare ephemera.

Our collections include artists and engravers such as Andrew Wyeth, William Hogarth, David Roberts, Norval Morriseau, Edward S. Curtis, Raymond Katz, Ansel Adams and Max Beerbohm and many, many more. There are historical plates illustrating important moments in time and portraits of important persons in history from an 1880s Cassell's Illustrated History of England, cityscapes from the renowned late 19th century book Greater New York Illustrated, rough and naive art from a 1936 America Today, plus engravings and maps from private collections. This is but a small sample of our varied and fascinating image collection.

We recommend using the 'Keyword' and/or 'Description' search for items using significant terms that are important to you if your search is not artist-specific. Please note, we offer a personal service so don't hesitate to fill out our search form and we will check our off-line inventory as well as create a permanent 'want' search for you. Or, at any time, email us at benbuysbooks@hotmail.com.

Thank you for your consideration of our engravings, maps, book plates and woodcuts.
