Henry and Ida Schuman began their antiquarian book business in Detroit in the 1930s, and soon moved to New York City where they established their well-known business on 20 East 70th Street and later at 2211 Broadway Street. They have been described as the first history of medicine rare book dealers in the United States. They enjoyed close ties with their clients, most notably to Duke University physician and collector Dr. Josiah Trent, whose collection of rare books and medical artifacts comprise the majority of the items in Duke University's History of Medicine Collections. Henry Schuman died in 1962 at the age of 63. After his death, Ida Schuman carried on with the business until her passing in 1977.
