This collection contains items related to the Heritage Book Shop, an antiquarian bookseller formerly located in West Los Angeles, California. This collection includes sale and purchase invoices, inventories, daily business files, catalogs, and artwork, dated from 1966-2007.
The Heritage Book Shop was an antiquarian bookshop located in Los Angeles, founded and owned by brothers Ben and Louis Weinstein. The shop started initially as B & J Merchandisers in early 1963 on Compton Boulevard in Compton, California, selling books, clothes, tools, and other items. The bookshop moved to various rented locations early on, but by November of 1988 the brothers moved the bookshop to a former mortuary on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood.
