Store Description

Tiber Books is an internet merchant with over 35 years of bookselling experience -- we've been offering our holdings online for nearly 20 years now. The majority of our inventory is scholarly non-fiction in both the sciences and the humanities, but we also carry an increasing selection of additional material in Americana, Art, History of Science and Technology, Regional U.S. History, Religion, and many other subjects. You can search our inventory by author and/or title. However, we also understand the need to browse by subject matter, and therefore make extensive use of Keywords in listing each of our books. You should have good results if you experiment with Keyword searches of our inventory. We also include a book's ISBN (if it has one), so if you'd like to search by ISBN, please use ABE's Advanced Search menu -- omit the dashes from the number when searching by ISBN. Enjoy browsing!
