Fall Miscellany, Chapter II

Fall Miscellany, Chapter II

It's that time again for our latest list of offering…  seems just the other day I was wearing shorts & bemoaning the Reno heat.  Not today!  Fall is definitely upon us, and before you know it the holidays will be with us.  I confess, I have yet do do any gift shopping, but here’s your opportunity to start for that bibliophile in your life!  
As per our practice, we offer a variety of items, from 19th C true crime, to a period CDV of that scandalous couple- Menken & Dumas, a scarce mid-19th C US legal work, a pamphlet on Billy the Kid, and much, much more.  Again, price points that fit most pocketbooks.
Happy to answer any questions, or take any orders.
