We finally priced and put a nice lot of books on the shelves in the past week. Co-owner Eugene did the house call. He describes it as:About 250 books from the estate of a former U-Mass prof in Medieval History. Many scholarly books on early British history--anglo-saxons, pre-roman, Normans, etc. Some on other european countries. including several on Greece. Some 19th bindings and sets on Anglo-Saxons. Nice copy of India in Greece and 19th c. book on Scandinavia. Several rows of books on history of science. Some are still in case #31A (new arrivals) but many have been shelved by topic.
Have spent a lot of "down" time in the last couple of days uploading store and book photos to the website's slide show feature. It's been fun...check it out.
This warmish and sunny weather has pulled people in from all over, just out for a drive. More new folks today then in a while. I forgot it's the beginning of the President's Day long weekend. We have been restocking several boxes a day so come and find the treasures and just good reads.
Sold a stack of vintage mysteries to several people today. Bought some A.A.Milne early editions, a motley lot of cook books and a signed Eric Sloane: RECOLLECTIONS In Black and White (1st edition with repaired dust jacket). The latter is in the glass case in the first room. Buying a handful of books almost every oday. Or being asked to. We are always buying but are getting pickier and pickier. Slightly less picky when it is for credit to use in the store.
Time to sign off and finish the paper work before the end of the day. Til later, Barbara
