“…to write? Because all this is going to vanish. The only thing left will be the prose and poems, the books, what is written down. Man was very fortunate to have invented the book. Without it the past would completely vanish, and we would be left with nothing, we would be naked on earth.”
— James Salter

**I DO SHIP INTERNATIONALLY-please contact me first with requests for pricing.

I have always been drawn to old books and objects for their history, warmth, and vintage appeal...sometimes they are fragile and warmly aged, as they are a piece of history and made of paper, so it isn't like buying a new book- it is best to keep this in mind when purchasing a used book (or object)!

Please note:
** I ship books out media mail for less expensive shipping for all of us (this takes 5 to 10 days or often less). If you would like something shipped otherwise, let me know and I will adjust pricing. Shipping prices will come down with each consecutive book ordered.

"I fell in love with this edition when I went to my college library and was ecstatic when I saw it on one of my favorite shops here on Etsy, "Art and Book Shop". I had to buy it immediately and was surprised to find it, but when I saw who had it available I said to myself, "Of course, why didn't I think of searching for it here first?" Just as always, I'm amazed by the variety and availability that Betsy brings to her shop. Just as always, I'll keep coming back for more. Highly recommend this shop!"
