Store Description

Internet and mail order; the inventory is largely catholic in scope in that there are items in many fields and disciplines; much of the stock, especially that of older or earlier copyrighted material, is from items which have been in the family for several generations. With the passage of time, and family members, these collections have, somewhat, gravitated together and are offered for sale, via ABE; we continue to acquire additional items of interest, from time to time, as they turn up.
