We seek an articulate, well-read, energetic individual for a long-term, full-time bookseller position at our Las Vegas gallery.

Experience with antiquarian books is not crucial, but a strong liberal arts background is required. A minimum of a bachelor's degree is necessary. Excellent verbal and social skills are essential in this position to communicate effectively by phone, in writing, and in person. Applicants must be comfortable selling in a results-driven, luxury retail environment.

Booksellers are also responsible for mastering a great deal of historical, bibliographic, and market information in a short span. Applicants must be available to work weekends and nights.

As a dynamic, highly motivated team of booksellers, we provide our clientele of largely private collectors with exceptional customer service and expertise in our field. The company was founded in 1973 by David and Natalie Bauman, and now has three locations: offices in Philadelphia; a gallery on Madison Avenue in New York; and a gallery at the Palazzo in Las Vegas. Learn more about our company and the type of material we offer on our website: www.baumanrarebooks.com.

To apply, please forward your resume/CV and a brief cover letter detailing your interest in antiquarian books and relevant experience to this listing. Any phone or in-person inquiries will be asked to do the same. Qualified candidates will receive our application.
