Book Patrol is a website committed to promoting, protecting and and preserving book culture. We offer a highly curated selection of collectible books and related material as well news and visuals from the abundant book universe.
Book Patrol was founded in 2006 by Michael Lieberman. Lieberman founded Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers (1993-2014) in Seattle and from 2016-18 managed the book collection at Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum.
All books offered for sale are guaranteed as described and shipped with care.
If you are looking to build a collection or need help dispersing a library we can assist. Looking for a gift? We offer expert gift services. And if you are a librarian looking to fill some holes or add something new to the collection – we welcome you to consider Book Patrol as a resource.
