Tom Boss is the owner of Thomas G. Boss Fine Books in Salem, Mass. He has been in business in the Greater Boston area since 1974, specializing in Art Deco, Arts & Crafts, and Art Nouveau books, livres d'artiste, fine bindings, press and illustrated books, the eighteen-nineties, and the decorative arts, as well as in fine art, posters and graphics in these areas. He also stocks and publishes reference books relating to these fields.
We met recently at the Boston International Antiquarian Bookfair to talk about the history, and collecting, of Copeland & Day, Stone & Kimball and other similar small publishing firms active in the 1890s in America.
