Although most of the books in the catalog are out of print, one featured book is a great new publisher's overstock- "Contemporary Silver. Commissioning. Designing. Collecting" by Benton Seymour Rabinovitch. Published by Merrell Publishers in 2000.

This is a sumptuous feast of a book for the silver lover, filled with gorgeous photographs of unique and surprising fantasies on the theme of the broad-bladed silver server. Rabinovitch, author of a book on antique broad-bladed silver servers, commissioned more than 60 new servers from a variety of working silver craftsmen, and the results are stunning and provocative. The text describes each server and the silversmiths' ideas in creating it, and also explores the relationship between artist and patron, and even how to become a patron, on a large or small scale, yourself. A fun book which silver lovers will spend hours going through again and again. Hardcover. 9.5"x10", 160 pages, color illustrations, dj. New. Published at $49.95

Publisher’s Overstock available for a limited time for $25.00.

We have a few Hunting & Fishing books ending on ebay this week. No reserves, because my Uncle Cal, a Maine fisherman for his entire life, always said- "A reserve in hand is worth two if be sea". Of course my Uncle Cal had had a few bourbons at that point and usually ended up snagging his own hat with his fly. But he made a mean meatloaf.

Anyway, we have some books, reasonable bids & no reserves. Click our Ebay Auction link for more details.
