Founded in 1980, Sumner & Stillman is an antiquarian book business that is prominent in the field of Literary First Editions of the 19th and early-20th centuries. We place strong emphasis upon the highly-desirable condition of the books we offer.

We are a small family enterprise, located in the scenic coastal village of Yarmouth, Maine. We work out of our 1855 farmhouse -- visible on the hill at the left, in the 1863 harbor scene shown below.
