Books for the Practical Historian

"I myself am more and more inclined to agree with Omar and Satchel Paige as I grow older: / Don't try to rewrite what the moving finger has writ, and don't ever look over your shoulder." Stevie Smith, My Muse

Evelyn: Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am. / Rick: And what is that? / Evelyn: I... am a librarian. / (From "The Mummy" (1999))

We are back from the vacation, mostly relaxed (who knew Baltimore's airport had such vicious thunderstorms?) Orders encouraged, and our hard-working shipping department shall proceed under full steam.

Five copies of Olaf Goubitz's Stepping Through Time have arrived, to join the one in stock. It's nice to know that one lonely copy of a book now has company.

Postage to non-U.S. addresses:

We wish to strongly reiterate: all orders to addresses outside of the United States will require additional postage. We have not yet figured out how to persuade the store's software to put those addresses into a special category that sidesteps U.S. postage. If you live elsewhere, we will send you an email with the additional charges, and offer you the choice to ante up or cancel; if you choose to cancel, your payment will be fully refunded, no questions asked.
