daiad fine books: unusual. unexpected. unique.

We are a small independent rare books firm based in historic Greenwich Village. We daily tread the hallowed ground once walked by the likes of Edna St. Vincent Millay, Federico Garcia Lorca, Willa Cather, Dylan Thomas, Dorothy Parker, Jack Kerouac, Sylvia Plath, and countless others from the heyday of the golden literary age in New York.

We like to believe that some of that DNA rubs off on us, from time to time. Certainly keeping our forebears in mind serves as inspiration to keep our eyes, hearts, and minds open, constantly seeking new and interesting material.

We sell via direct quote, catalogue, and, in partnership with with our colleagues at The Libriquarian, online at Biblio.com.
