Books for the Practical Historian
"A book should serve as the ax for the frozen sea within us." Franz Kafka

"If you invent two or three people and turn them loose in your manuscript, something is bound to happen to them - you can't help it; and then it will take you the rest of the book to get them out of the natural consequences of that occurrence." Mark Twain

We are back from vacation. If anyone wishes to get on our good side, a continuing supply of mint juleps and Arnold Palmers would be a good way of doing it.

Barbara Nostrand's Name Construction in Medieval Japan is back in stock. Copies of The Elf Hill Song Book have arrived, and are eagerly waiting to be sent out to their new owners.

There is a brand-new publication just out: Drei Scnittb├╝cher: Three Austrian Master Tailor Books of the 16th Century. We have just three advance copies available; we hope more will be coming, but do not know when.

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.
