Zeitlin, Jake (1902-) | Special Collections & University Archives

Name: Zeitlin, Jake (1902-)


Historical Note: Jacob Zeitlin , commonly referred to as "the venerable antiquarian bookseller," was best known for his bookshop on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.  Over the years, Zeitlin dealt manuscripts with Frieda, widow of D.H. Lawrence, written poetry endorsed by Carl Sandburg, and had his shops designed by Lloyd Wright (son of Frank Lloyd Wright.)  He began as a book peddler in 1925 with only a valise of books, then he moved into a small shop on "bookseller's row," and at the time of his death in September 1987, he had several shops and international acclaim as a dealer in rare books and art.
