ABOUT US

BeatBooks specialises in rare and used books, magazines and ephemera from the Beat Generation, the Sixties CounterCulture and the Avant-Gardes.

Andrew Sclanders has been selling rare books, journals, posters and manuscripts to collectors, libraries and museums since 1990. BeatBooks.com was established in 1998.

I issue three catalogues a year in my specialisms - Beat Literature, Sixties CounterCulture and the Twentieth Century Avant-Gardes. These categories are extremely fluid, however, and my catalogues have featured an eclectic mix over the years, ranging from hippie communes to punk rock, and revolutionary politics to experimental music.

I am always interested in buying good books, posters and other rare material relating to my specialisms, whether individual items or entire collections. If you are interested in offering items for sale, please get in touch with me.

For important or large collections I am happy to pay a visit.
