About Us

The Chatham Bookseller has been in historic Madison, NJ for more than forty years. Ours is a general shop which emphasizes good literature, art and scholarly books in many different fields. We also sell rare books, first editions, ephemera, and classical and jazz CDs. The shop is open six days a week and we encourage browsing. We are happy to bring out books listed online upon request. We also do book searches and appraisals. Since February 2015, The Chatham Bookseller has been owned and operated by Richard Chalfin and Kathy Rodgers who have decades of experience in bookselling prior to taking over the shop. We buy used and rare book and ephemera collections in New Jersey and the tri-state area and are happy to make house calls.
