Our pre-owned, rare and out-of-print books are in the fields of theology, art and architecture, history, political science, sociology, English literature, philosophy, theater studies, medicine, and science. As members of the academy, we know the importance of scholarly literature and strive to offer books that are not easily located in traditional venues. We procure inventory from not only our extensive domestic travel but also our European contacts.
Susannah and Kenneth have been selling books online for over fifteen years and are committed to providing each customer with the highest standard of customer service. For this reason, we try to describe each book carefully, answer orders and inquiries immediately, and ship promptly, usually on the same day it is ordered. Each book is selected with the needs of our customers in mind, and we hope that you find our selection of interest.
