Gifts of Spirit

In the gift-giving seasons I enjoy running my eyes through the rare book department and choosing great books that could become cherished gifts. There is a book for every personality, and humanity is diverse so it’s challenging. Most book interest begins with content, but in rare book space, we find extra pleasure in the physicality of books. Ideas may be seminal, but it is mostly paper and ink that holds it intact for our taking. The object that contains compelling ideas and great stories will gain totemic presence in the mind of the affected. Most books don’t provide a wide array of choices but the iconic books of a culture are frequently published in numerous ways. It is hard to explain, but great copies of great books make me very happy. These books shown here are a mere sampling of the thousands we showcase. We’ve already acquired other great editions. Should you need assistance: we are here to help.
