Shadowrock Rare Books Adam Langlands

27 Cleaveland Street, Lakeville, Connecticut, 06039

United States


Shadowrock Rare Books: a new book business by an old bookman. Starting in the 1970s, Adam Langlands has worked for most of the great auction houses, and been associated with a number of the greatest dealers. He has examined, researched and catalogued a huge range of books representing many subjects, languages, techniques, dates and price-points: from 'Sky-Hi A trip into space with Terry' (1952, kid's transformational book, value $100+) to the Fox/Bute copy of Audubon's 'Double-Elephant Folio' (sold at auction for $8,802,500).  Inspired by their recent move to a home which previously belonged to both George Simenon (of Maigret fame) and Seymour Hacker (founder of Hacker Art Books), Adam and Susu Langlands have decided to continue the literary connection and set up Shadowrock Rare Books. Today's global online marketplace means that there is a danger that the call of the unique will get drowned out by the cries of the banal: it is the mission of Shadowrock Rare Books to rescue and highlight these gems.
