We are always looking for and selling rare Texas History. We also carry many other titles (mostly First Editions) of non-fiction. Check out our growing inventory of Collectible Children's books.

We have been selling fine rare, out of print used books since 1986. We started selling exclusively on the internet in 1995. We also exhibit at book shows in Texas and throughout the United States. We occasionally issue specialty catalogs. We do not have an open shop. Our book sales on Alibris have continued to grow each year due to emphasis on fast delivery and service. Orders are shipped the same day received and no later than the next business day. The average time from order to customer in the U.S. is 3 days. We want our internet customers to experience the same personal service that you would expect in an old fashioned book store. Returns are always handled promptly and courteously. Robert L.
