Welcome to Krown & Spellman Booksellers!

Krown & Spellman, Booksellers is in the process of closing up shop and bidding farewell after 37 years in business. Our entire collection has been consigned to Heritage Auctions and will be available in several different auctions to be held in October 2014 and February and April 2015. These will include such highlights as the never-before catalogued personal collections of Franklinís demonology and witchcraft print collection, his comprehensive collection of Lord Dunsany books and letters, and his collection of books by the first important woman printer, Charlotte Guillard. Other prints and manuscripts, heretofore uncatalogued, also will be included, as will our entire internet catalogue and our extensive reference collection. All materials have now been consigned so please do not inquire about making any purchases. It is with mixed feelings that we bring Krown & Spellman, Booksellers to a close but with wholehearted appreciation for all our friends and colleagues with whom we shared many happy years in the book business. Thank you. Frank, Elizabeth & Ryan
