About Us

Up-Country Letters Fine and Rare Books is an internet rare bookselling concern operated in Gardnerville, Nevada, USA, by Mark Stirling. We specialize in Nineteenth Century American and English Literature, particularly American Renaissance and Transcendental Literature, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. We also maintain an inventory of general rare and fine antiquarian books and manuscripts, first editions, natural history (especially birding) books, and archaeological books and monographs.


Since 1998 we have been buying and selling rare books and manuscripts.  Finding good items to buy is more difficult than selling them;  please give us the opportunity to make an offer for your fine or rare items.
