We have a bookcase dedicated to our titles over 100 years old, but antiquarian books are also scattered all over the store. We are not in the business of bookbinding, but have had good work done by Delaney Restorations in Amissville, VA.

Old books exert a strange fascination for me — their smell, their feel, their history; wondering who might have owned them, how they lived, what they felt.
