Welcome to Pomander Books!
We began as the Pomander Bookshop in New York City more than
25 years ago. We now deal privately, specializing in hard-to-find
modern poetryfrom T. S. Eliot and Conrad Aiken through
Wallace Stevens and W. H. Auden to the New York School, the
Beats, the Language Poets, etc.
We also carry important 20th-century prose. Our emphasis is
on first editions and signed books, especially association copies.
Because so many of the great modern writers were published by
various small presses in extremely limited editions, we make
it a point of trying to find and stock these books. And for
the same reason, we have a quantity of literary magazines where
these writers first published (search category Literary
We also always have in stock a substantial number of out-of-print
books and things by Edward Gorey.
