Thorn Books was established in 1987. Our name comes both from the Thorn of Glastonbury with its Arthurian connotations, & the Old English alphabet letter:. Thorn Books was admitted to the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America in 1991. We deal in fine books in all fields, but with a special attention to material related to King Arthur and Early Britain (including England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales).
