About themodernfirst

Sales 2,475
On Etsy since 2016

You won't find an association copy of the Mayflower Compact on our shelves, but you will find a refined mélange of collectible modern literature. We have thousands of titles in the fields of fiction, poetry, philosophy, history, art, science, biography, and more. We ship all of our books in boxes and we always pay for shipping* If you don't see the title you want, let us know—we probably have it in our inventory.

*excluding international or expedited orders
