DescriptionBauman Rare Books offers antiquarian books and rare autograph documents in all fields from the 15th through the 21st centuries. The company has three locations -- Philadelphia, New York City, and Las Vegas.
We seek an articulate, well-read, energetic individual for a long-term, full-time bookseller position. This opening is for our Las Vegas location only. While all applications will be considered, we prefer that job candidates already reside in the Las Vegas metro area or have existing plans to relocate.
Experience with antiquarian books is not crucial, but a strong liberal arts background is required. Excellent verbal and social skills are essential. As a dynamic, motivated team of booksellers, we provide our clientele of largely private collectors with exceptional customer service and expertise in our field. Booksellers are responsible for mastering a great deal of historical, bibliographic, and market information in a short span, as well as communicating effectively via phone, in writing, and in person on the gallery floor. Minimum level of education required is a Bachelor's degree.
Applicants must be comfortable negotiating and selling in a results-driven, luxury retail environment. Because our Las Vegas gallery is open 365 days a year from 10 AM - 11 PM, booksellers must be available to work weekends, nights, and holidays.
Applicants can learn more about our company and the types of material we offer on our website: www.baumanrarebooks.com.
To apply, please send your resume/CV along with a brief cover letter detailing your interest in antiquarian books and relevant experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we feel your education and experience are a good match for our needs, we'll be in touch with our application. No phone inquiries, please.
