Specializing in Americana and world travel, William Reese Co. has served collectors and institutions since 1975. Reese operates from a pair of 19th-century brownstone townhouses just on the edge of Yale University in downtown New Haven. The store is open by appointment only but the collection is not limited to the rare and priceless. You can find 20th-century scholarly books on American history in the $10-$50 range or splurge on firsthand accounts of the American Revolution or hand-colored Octavo editions of Audubon birds.
