Stacks of used books abound. This specialty business is run by B. Petroske and friends. Most of our sales are via printed catalogs of books, filling rare wants of customers, word of mouth sales worldwide, and occasional participation in antiquarian book fairs. Our listings on abebooks.com are only a sliver of our inventory which comprises over 40,000 books and a large selection of rare ephemera. In addition, we have a few interesting books for sale at jpmountainbooks.com where nearly all of the items presented do not duplicate our abebooks listings. If you seek a rare mountaineering book (or polar or central asia exploration item) you can send an email with the query to email@example.com and we will try to respond promptly, though often we are away climbing or pursuing rare books and collections, which means the response might take a week or two or three or...longer. We have had success in finding hundreds of rare books for customers who, in many cases, have been searching for those rare items for years. Our interaction with a large number of advanced collectors worldwide enables us to make deals where a rare item is extracted from one collection and added to another collection. Most such items are never listed on the internet or in catalogs. We also purchase individual rare items and entire collections. Want lists from collectors and dealers are welcome. Bill P.
