About Us

Marco PanellaAuger Down Books is the work of Marco Panella of Marlboro, Vermont. I have been a professional bookseller since 2012, and have been a member in good standing of the American Bookseller’s Association of America since 2015. I studied history at Brown University and photography as a visiting student at the Rhode Island School of Design. Before selling books I managed a record store in Philadelphia, ran a record label and spent several years as a recording musician and video artist.

My inventory is a reflection of my interest in American history across various formats, and in particular an interest in the cultural and social history of America. I stock material that I find compelling. I am very selective with the material that is included here on my site. I also maintain a large selection of general stock, available through Biblio and Abebooks.

Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding your collecting interests. In addition to publishing catalogs and listing material on the site, I also can assist directly in collection development.
