Every four to six weeks we publish illustrated lists of maritime books, documents, manuscripts and ephemera here on our website. If you wish to be informed when these lists are posted, sign up for our mailing list by going to the “Keep Informed” section at the bottom of the page, and filling in your name and email address. When a new list is posted, you will receive an email from us. Please bear in mind that many of the items in our lists sell within a few days, so it’s important to read and respond quickly!
Our Most Recent Catalog
About this time every summer I issue a catalog of good, old-fashioned, cheap books. Intellectually they’re still worth a great deal, but they’re in that class of books whose value has been destroyed by the Internet. There’s really no other way to describe them. They’re interesting enough to want to read, but cheap enough so that if you brought one to the beach and spilled a soda on it, well… no great loss. Or if there is a loss, it’s mine. Before they became devalued by the online “race to the bottom,” I made my living selling books like these. On the other hand, my loss is your gain. So here they are, in all their inexpensive glory. I hope you buy them all, and I hope you actually take some of them to the beach with you. I’m sure they’re more interesting than whatever bestseller is topping the charts right now.
Oh, and unlike our rare book lists, we WILL be charging postage on these items – $5 for the first book, $2.50 for each additional title. Large orders and overseas shipments at cost. We accept MC, Visa, PayPal and check. (For security reasons we do not retain credit card numbers, so you’ll have to supply that info each time you order.) We recommend you email your orders to firstname.lastname@example.org or order through our website. These will be taken according to the order in which they are received. If you wish to call try 978-283 5299 after 12 pm EST.
