About Zeds Books



Our History

Chris Edwards and Luca Sciullo founded Zeds Books while attending the University of Virginia as undergraduates.  These two entrepreneurs took a step closer to realizing their dreams of becoming business owners and started their own small business in April 2002.  Starting from scratch, Chris and Luca sought out rare books from Estate Sales, Yard Sales and the occasional bookstore.  After 14 years of operation, Zeds Books is still going strong.  The latest step for Zeds Books is an expansion to selling on abe.com.
