History

 

Printers Row Fine and Rare Books was established in 2001 in the heart of Chicago’s Historic Printers Row District, which is located in the South Loop section of Downtown Chicago.

The Bookshop is located in a storefront at 715 South Dearborn Street, on the ground floor of the Historic M. A. Donohue Publishing Building.  From 1883 until 1971, the M. A. Donohue Publishing Company was one of the world’s most renowned and respected publishers of Children’s Literature and Children’s Books. The Donohue building is a Chicago Landmark Building, and it retains most of the splendid original exterior and interior architectural features.

Printers Row Fine and Rare Books specializes in 16th through 20th Century British and American Literature, as well as Chicago History, Chicago Authors and Poets, Antiquarian Books, Exceptionally Rare Books, Incunabula, Rockwell Kent, Books on Books, Books on Printing, Typography and The Book Arts, Modern First Editions, Performing Arts, Cinema, Film and Hollywood, Author and Literary Ephemera, Children's Illustrated Books, Literary Autographs and Manuscripts, Fine Press Editions and Leatherbound Sets.

We also maintain an off-site warehouse, which is presently filled with thousands of boxes of books yet to be catalogued and offered for sale … thus ensuring that we will always have newly catalogued items for sale on our website!
