As at the end of June 2013 the 'bricks and mortar' store we had operated from the same location in the Fraser Valley region of British Columbia, Canada, since 1993 closed. We continue to be of service to our customers and friends throughout the world as an Internet business. We welcome your queries as much of our inventory of rare and out-of-print books are not yet listed on-line. A number of our books can be located by subject in the various Catalogues you will find on the 'Browse our Catalogs' page via the link below. We have a strong collection of Canadiana, as well as local histories from British Columbia, including a number of items of Native or First Nations books. Other areas include: Military History, Art, Literature, and Poetry. We look forward to having the opportunity to assist in building your collection! We take care to properly pack your purchase - the least expensive shipping isn't always the safest! We sincerely thank all of our friends, old and new, who joined us at the 2019 Vancouver Rare Book, Photograph and Paper Show, at the beautiful Heritage Hall. [The plate shown above is from our offering of a beautiful early 18th Century printing of the full text of Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War]
