Because we have been active participants in the Mexican academic publishing world for more than four decades, we have the contacts and wherewithal to quickly hunt down and obtain obscure and hard-to-find titles.

Ever wonder why other specialized Mexican book vendors seldom offer to supply out-of-print or hard-to-get books? Their business model requires them to offer only books they already have at hand or easy to acquire titles from major presses. What about publications from NGOs? Government agencies? Trade associations? We thrive on providing specialized publications that enrich and enhance library collections. Our greatest satisfaction is to fulfill requests for singular books from obscure and out-of-the-way publishers.

Our acquisitions information and holdings date from the 1980s. Such longevity in the marketplace means that we do have copies of many out-of-print titles.

We stock more than 13,000 Mexican academic publications for immediate fulfillment.

Books From Mexico maintains its principal operating center in Mexico City from there we branch out to the rest of the country. We have been a participant in the Mexican academic book trade for so many decades that we know how and where to find out-of-print books not currently in stock.

      “Monstrua” – Brenda Lozano y Gabriela Jauregui (coordinadoras)

      When discussing literature throughout history, names arise within any of the existing currents. We can easily recognize all the Greeks in the creation of classical drama, Edgar Allan Poe establishing guidelines for the structure of contemporary short stories in Romanticism, Oscar Wilde inaugurating his own aestheticism movement… And the examples could go on.
