Welcome

Our work at J. Hood, Booksellers centers on scholarly books in all subject areas, with the goal of distributing them into the hands of interested minds around the globe.  We take great pleasure in handling these books, paying decent prices for their purchase, and then carefully cataloging and describing them for sale. We began business in 1974, and will continue as long as our minds and bodies hold out!

Currently there are over 44,000 books available for purchase in our database, and we work daily to increase that number for your perusal. If you wish to be notified about new stock in your area of interest, please add your email and topic to the "Topic Notification" area on this page.
