We Left Our Hearts in San Francisco

We Left Our Hearts in San Francisco

You know the song...

Well, we are lucky to be located a stone's throw away from "where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars"! We can't imagine living any place else.

In honor of our foggy city, we've pieced together a baker's dozen of interesting pieces from and of San Francisco! Complete with beautiful views and the history of the area... if you share a love for our city, it's sure not to disappoint.

Just in Time...

Another choice selection of our inventory with gift giving in mind.

Happy Holidays, from both of us at Tavistock Books.

Uncommon Survivors

Uncommon Survivors

Survivor. 

A word that these days usually calls to mind the myriad of television series built on the theme.  But here on the good ship Tavistock, by survivor, we refer to those pieces of bibliophilic flotsam that we’ve found swirling in backwater eddies of a forgotten used bookstore, or on the figurative beach of a flea market table.  And like a castaway that treasures such items washed ashore, to again be put to use, we have endeavored, in this catalogue, to bring these 35 uncommon items back to the forefront, giving them life & purpose anew.  

Enjoy.
