Store Description

I do not have a brick and mortar storefront, listing from home utilizing HomeBase - Nearly all of the books listed are only available single copy, some are new/as new - most are fine or very good - Many unusual/ Collectible/Signed - First Editions/1st printing when possible. I have been a lover and collector of books since early childhood, participating in Metaphysical and Art Bookstore during the 1970's in San Francisco, Ca., Hence, many of the Spiritual, Art and Fantasy/Science Fiction - unusual books are from my private library collection. Art, Beauty, Film, Higher Knowledge - and books that inspire - these continue to come my way and I would love to make them available to others.
