David does the leg work and you get the gems. Estate sale excursions bring us books reflecting specific tastes and interests. Recently we picked up collections about Japanese Cooking, Art and WWII Pacific Theater from the Japanese point of view. Today we got Egyptian and Native American archeologically. Right now we have San Antonio history as well.
The numbers of lives reflected in the diversity of books we find make these books all the more special. Take advantage of our discriminating eye, these are one-of-a-kind books from one-of-a-kind people.
This is the original story of Herman Lehmann published
24 years before 9 Years Among the Indians.
Theodore and Kermit Roosevelt, First Edition, 1926, $150

This rare find includes histories of methods, materials
and artists styles, all in Japanese.

“For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived, for fiction, biography, and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time.”
