Honey & Wax Books | PressHow did you get started in rare books? Pure accident. I had just returned home from a year teaching English in Japan. I had planned on getting a Master's degree in Japanese Literature, but was not able to get back to the US in time to start for the fall semester.

I studied English as an undergraduate at Columbia, and received my Ph. I love bookselling, which combines some of the most rewarding aspects of research and teaching, but involves no grading.
