As you can see, our books & maps collection is taking on a life of its own!
We’ve collected so many wonderful old books (including many first editions) and contemporary ones (with loads of kids books and cookbooks), as well as framed & unframed topographical maps, that we have to set up their own little shop.
Watch for Heritage Books & Maps to open in its own location at 5 Park Street in Lewiston… definitely by March 1st, 2016, but perhaps even sooner. The pictures above show the shop’s transformation in progress… we have boxes and boxes of books to add to our shelves (and inventory from Papa’s Thrift Shop to remove and consolidate with Heritage Collectibles, which is right around the corner).
Here are a few of the vintage books we have in stock:
Emily Post’s Etiquette
Three Loves, by A J Cronin
The Long Patrol, by H A Cody
The Crisis, by Winston Churchill
The House of the Seven Gables, by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Thankful’s Inheritance, by Joseph C Lincoln
Tom Swift & His Ocean Airport, by Victor Appleton
The Good Earth, by Pearl S Buck
A Daughter of the Sioux, by General Charles King
Fairy Tales, by Hans Anderson (yes, this edition is old enough that he went without the “Christian” in his name!)
The Re-Creation of Brian Kent, by Harold Bell Wright
Tall Stories, by Lowell Thomas
