Holmes began his career in 1972 in Boston.  He now works from Hamilton, New York; dealing almost entirely in letters, manuscripts, archives and books in the field of 18th through 20th century English and American literature, with an emphasis on the period of 1840 to 1940. In addition, the company occasionally handles original artwork (usually illustrations for literary works), letters of English and American artists and illustrators, photographs of authors, and correspondence by playwrights and theatrical figures (mostly from the period prior to 1940). For the past 15 years, Sarah Holmes has joined her father in the business.
