Oasis Books Rare Book Rooms house our On-Line Inventory books as we’ll as books in various genres that deserve special care and protection. They may be older printings from the Nineteenth and Eighteenth Centuries, which are usually, leather bindings.
These volumes, now as old as 300 years, require very careful handling to preserve what still remains of their binding structure, their leather covered boards and spine, and especially the paper which can be quite fragile at this age. These volumes embrace subjects as varied as early Humor, texts in Latin, German, French and other Languages, Travel Expeditions by Land and Sea over the Globe, Religious Material, early Scientific texts, Medical books as well as Histories of Countries and Empires, their Formations and their Demises. At Oasis Books, we keep these books, separated from the storers general stock and offer customers the opportunity to browse them. Please ask for assistance when you visit in our shop to view these titles. Most of our on-line listings are shelved in these protected rear rooms as well.
