Our shop

Our Shop

Globus Books is an independent San Francisco-based bookshop and a member of the American Booksellers’ Association and the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America and has been in business since 1971. It was opened originally by Vladimir Azar as a shop for the Russian emigre public of the Bay Area. A small press operated there in the 1970s under the same name in the same building. Now, 50+ years in business, the shop still occupies the same premises with continued success.
 
Globus Rare Books and Archives is the department within Globus Books that specializes in rare travel and exploration related items from around the world with an emphasis on the Americas, the Pacific and Russian explorers and travellers. Our goal is to seek out and offer rare and unique antiquarian items, including rare books, photographs, photo-albums, watercolors, drawings, manuscripts, archives, maps and prints.

 

Our team has many decades of experience helping to build many institutional and private collections across the USA and the world and we have seen and handled many important antiquarian items and collections.
 
We issue monthly catalogues with the newest acquisitions available for our subscribers.
 
We participate in many US and International antiquarian book fairs. Follow us on social media to receive the latest news and offers.
 
You can browse our collections in person during the shop’s opening hours by appointment : Tuesday to Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm.
