Founded by Matthew and Adrienne Raptis, Raptis Rare Books is an antiquarian bookstore located at 329 Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, which specializes in fine first editions, signed and inscribed books, and landmark books in all fields. We have distinguished ourselves by having a reputation for handling unique and important books that are in exceptional condition.
We specialize in working with private collectors with a specific wish list, helping individuals find the ideal gift for special occasions, and partnering with representatives of institutions. Whether you are interested in building a traditional library of fine bindings, have an interest in science fiction, architecture, sports, cooking, economics, history, or any other genre, we have experience in finding the perfect books for the perfect shelf. We know that each person is unique, and our aim is to match your library with your home and its reflection of the owner's personality. We are here to assist you in your pursuit and to be your guide in bringing the library of your imagination to reality.
Come visit our beautiful gallery and also grab a bite to eat at our literary-themed cafe, The Via Roma Cafe. You can also enjoy a premium cigar at The Churchill Cigar Company, which is also located in the Via Roma. In such a fast-paced world, our aim is to offer people a slower world-class experience. Stop and browse and remember the books that shaped your life. Enjoy the simple pleasures of a nice cup of Italian coffee and delicious food. Unwind while smoking a cigar and having meaningful conversations.
