It's been a long winter here abouts--Pa moved us all into town, then the trains stopped running on account of all the snow, so we couldn't get our Christmas turkey or really anything. Then the coal gave out and we took to burning twisted hay for heat--wait, that's Laura Ingalls Wilder's Long Winter. I guess I really shouldn't complain.
The big acquisition story here of late is the arrival of a large science collection. There are scads of books on physics, cosmology, the history and philosophy of science, the origins of life, the science-religion relationship, evolution and genetics. Most are recent by our standards (which is to say they have ISBN numbers). There are a smattering of books signed by the likes of Freeman Dyson, Stephen Jay Gould, Peter Medawar and Richard Dawkins.
Welcome to the Grey Matter/Troubadour Amalgamation of Books, Hadley's #1 hard-to-find source for hard-to-find books and records. We are located just off the bike path at East St. and non-motorists get a 10% discount year-round. We have a large, constantly churned selection of scholarly, scientific and general stock, nearly all priced below their internet brethren.
We've also acquired two sets of L. Baskin's illustrations for the Iliad. They were printed by Meriden Gravure back in 1962 in an edition of only 150 on very nice paper--these are the printer's own copies. We're selling one set complete (60 prints) for $750 and individual prints for $15/each from the other.
NOTE: The Spring sale will probably be held April 10th-13th. I promise to firm this up by April 8th at the latest.
There is also a small mountain of more popular-oriented titles from this collection that we are selling for $1 for hardcovers or 50 cents for paper.
Hours: M,W,TH, F 10-6; SAT 11-6; SUN 12-5; Tuesday by chance (usually 11-3)
