About Us

Established in 1986 by Priscilla Lowry, Art Historian and specialist in the work of John James Audubon and the fine art of Natural History from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. We are members of the American Historical Print Collectors Society.

After running a brick and mortar rare print and bookshop in Langley on Whidbey Island, Washington for three decades Lowry-James Rare Prints & Books currently operates business from a serene woodland setting; selling through our website, online catalogues and by appointment. If you would like to be notified about our recent acquisitions kindly visit:
