About Us

Welcome to Maiden Voyage Booksellers; where your business is appreciated and your satisfaction guaranteed. We stand behind every item we sell.

Founded and operated by Leo Hallen, who after many years of sales and marketing in New York publishing, evolved into being a bookseller and relocated to the South coast of Maine; where we've been servicing clients from all over the world since 1992 through mail order, the Internet and specialized shows.

We are always pleased to answer any questions about any of our titles, send photos, scans or photocopies; or to explain any item in greater detail via telephone or e-mail. Feel free to contact us at any time.


We also carry an extensive selection of over 2,000 assorted ship postcards. Please contact us with your wants or questions.
