In celebrating its 200th anniversary in the year 2000, the Navy Department Library embarked on a project to highlight its unique role in preserving the nation’s naval heritage.  Selecting, compiling, reviewing, and editing catalog entries required the commitment, dedication, and hard work of experts in early naval literature, a small library staff, and a conscientious editor.  

The publishing of America’s Naval Heritage was made possible by the Department of Defense Legacy Program that identifies special military, natural, and cultural resources.  For its part, the library’s project sought to broaden access to historical materials, to encourage naval research and scholarship, and to identify, evaluate, and preserve important military heritage assets.  Publishing this catalog not only celebrates the Navy Department Library’s 200th year of continuous service but also gives all Americans and the international community of scholars a look into the rare and valuable literature that records the earliest traditions and history of the U.S. Navy.

Described in this beautifully illustrated work is a little-known collection of rare 18th and 19th-century titles held by one of our nation's oldest federal libraries, the Navy Department Library. The more than 300 entries record the U.S. Navy's achievements in combat, international diplomacy, technology, customs and traditions, exploration, medicine, education, and social reform. For all those with an interest in the Navy and the sea, this exquisite catalog promises a delightful encounter with America's naval past.

We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
