Columbia Books began October 1, 1977 and has been continuing along ever since. The books are an eclectic mixture of 35,000 volumes ranging from new releases to antiquarian volumes 400 years old, emphasising books which are interesting and have some literary merit. We also have a large accumulation of prints, maps, ephemera, interesting older periodicals.

Annette Kolling-Buckley is the proprietor of Columbia Books, and came to the book business in much the normal way--totally by accident due to a poor job market for rare book librarians. Clayton Weaver and Jonathan Pons all work to keep things in order and running smoothly. Fred is the Resident Cat. As we are obsessive-compulsive people, Columbia Books is very much customer-service oriented. We will make every humanly possible effort to get the book to the customer, either ordering it if its in print, or if it is out of print, searching tirelessly until it is found. Annette and Clayton are both graduates of the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar; Annette attended in 1985 and Clayton attended in 2009. We are members of ABAA/ILAB
