Recent additions, April 2022
Last week's snowstorm set us back but now we have time to get another list to you. We lost power and had a number of trees down on the property - after buying a new chain saw and spending a couple of days cutting and moving wood, we're back at the book business.
One of our Spring projects has been to update older ABE listings and adding them to our website. Quite a few of those books were from the private collection of a professor of philosophy at a Catholic college, and focus on the study of Thomism. You can find them in our philosophy catalogue, link here.
Also, we have begun to sell the Anti-Masonic Collection as individual volumes; those still available are in the list below.
These selections are priced high to low.

Do you collect Bibles? Do you include the many Catholic versions published in the US during the 19th century? You will want a copy of Sidney Ohlhausen's The American Catholic Bible in the Nineteenth Century: A Catalog of English Language Editions. "This is an enumeration of every Catholic edition of the Bible and New Testament known to have appeared with an American imprint during the 19th century. It includes editions actually published in America, and editions from England and Ireland that would later appear with the imprints of American publishers." A few years ago we had the great privilege of selling Mr. Ohlhausen's enormous collection of Catholic Bibles upon which this bibliography was based. We have three copies left of this important resource, two of which we will sell.
