About

Version 2I began my rare book career as a student worker in the Mortimer Rare Book Room at Smith College. Over the course of the following decade, I worked for multiple auction houses, libraries, and antiquarian booksellers, most recently Ursus Books in New York City.

In 2015, I founded my own book business specializing in social history, especially as it relates to women. My inventory includes books and manuscripts from the 16th-20th century concerning cookery and domestic science, etiquette, fashion, and theater, among other subjects. I am especially interested in items with contemporary annotations or hybrid qualities that distinguish them as unique objects.

After living in Paris, France, for a year and gathering inventory and contacts abroad, I moved back to the U.S., re-establishing Zoe Abrams Rare Books (ZARB) in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.
