New Books

We are modifying our website.

New Books are now shown as "New" in categories. 
Pre-Owned Books will be shown as Pre-Owned" in the same categories.
Until this is complete, there will also be books shown in the Pre-Owned section.
A very long and slow process.  Please be patient.

Pre-Owned Books

We purchase private libraries to offer our clients a wide range of top quality pre-owned titles.

We have multiple copies of a large percentage of the titles listed on our site. The books displayed may not be the best condition nor the worst condition - they may not be the most expensive nor the least expensive - not any particular print run if the book has been reprinted - just a random sample of the selection available. If you are seeking a specific print run of a particular title or a book of differing condition to the one listed - please contact us as we may be able to help you.
