We find new books every day.

Some have the most beautiful illustrations.

This book is so charming! SOLD

Look carefully for the 1st editions.

Amazing reference books that you wouldn’t have thought you needed, and yet…

Guerrilla warfare in Russia during the Nazi invasion. Published in 1942. A story worth reading.

What a hoot! This one is called, Joe, the Wounded Tennis Player. Doesn’t appear to be about tennis!

Art students and medical students…check it out! SOLD

A little old fashioned silliness.

Always something to learn from Aesop.

Our books are ever changing. If you’re a book lover, it’s worth a regular stop to see what’s new. You may want to ask about the books that will not go out on the shelves.

Can anyone relate to this? Non-fiction accounts of men who had contact with extra terrestrials.

This collectible 1957 first edition of They Rode In Spaceships is a gem, if only for it’s illustrations:

Super cool gift for the believer in your life. $25

You might want to take out every page and frame them…

…but you probably shouldn’t because they go together so beautifully and the cover is phenomenal. This copy of Willie Mouse by Alta Taylor, illustrated by Ernest Aris is from approximately 1915. It has some scribbles and writing in it and the wear of a well-loved children’s book- Certainly more charming for the character and sense of history they provide.

The colors are so vibrant. Really stunning. $50 SOLD

Beautiful illustrations of African Americans from 1902.

Yes, we are judging this by it’s cover because it’s a really cool one. It makes us want to look inside where it gets even better. The book is Napoleon Jackson by Ruth McEnery Stuart, 1902, and yes, we love illustrations, covers, interiors and typography as much as the words on the page. Very rare to find a book with African American subjects like this one from that era.

Isn’t this nice? There are several more like it inside. $10
