About Us


Dividing Line Books was founded by Evan Miller in 2018 after several years of intermittent bookselling and many more of dedicated bibliophilia. We are literary generalists operating from a position of restless, democratic curiosity — curiosity which we feel confident will lead us down paths of increasing specialization as time goes on.

Terms of Sale

Dividing Line Books treats orders according to strict ethical and professional standards. All items are guaranteed as described and returnable within 30 days for any reason. If you have any questions about an item, please get in touch. We are happy to field inquiries of any nature, and will usually respond within 24 hours with additional photos, condition or bibliographic details, etc. All items are subject to prior sale, although we do our best to keep listings closely updated to avoid the disappointment of out-of-stock orders.

All books ship free with tracking to domestic addresses via USPS Media Mail. In most cases, delivery takes place within a three to ten day window, although the vicissitudes of USPS naturally apply. Unless otherwise requested, expedited domestic purchases ship via USPS Priority Mail; overseas orders via USPS First Class International. Heavy or oversized books may incur additional shipping charges, as may books shipped to overseas destinations. Any additional charges required will be communicated promptly.

We take safe packaging very seriously; all of our books ship in new cardboard boxes with ample cushioning. Pamphlets and other flat materials items are ocassionally shipped in bubble-mailers with internal cardboard supports. All books with dust jackets are fitted with brand new archival protectors prior to shipping.
