Books for the Practical Historian
"Access to knowledge is the superb, the supreme act of truly great civilizations. Of all the institutions that purport to do this, free libraries stand virtually alone in accomplishing this mission." Toni Morrison

"Books are the carriers of civilization. They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print." Barbara W. Tuchman

We are back from New York, where the weather was pretty good, and the crowds weren't oppressive. It's still too darn large for a person walking around to take in all the independent bookstores.

We are low on Serra and Tumberg's An Early Meal, and for once we're doing the smart thing: putting in an order for more copies.

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, so please ignore the postage charges on the order form. 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.
