For SaleBooks



A quick note about my philosophy on books. A wise collector told me that if I bought a rock, I should buy a book at the same time. I support the knowledge within books, and I will accept any reasonable offer on a book, to promote learning.

Set of Ohio Archs - #B-1

Description: This is a complete set of Ohio Arch magazines from Volume #1 (1951) - Volume #63 (2013). Missing 1964 #1. Stored in hard cases with the years labeled. I would grade the set as a B to B-, using the grade school scale. 62 years of the best State journal ever produced. I haven't counted them, but it is around 250 journals. The early journals are nearly impossible to find, and full sets rarely come up for sale. I guarantee you can't buy the first 15 years of journals individually for what I am going to sell you the entire set for.

Price: $1000. Non negotiable.


Archaeological History of Ohio by Gerard Fowke- #B-2

Description: A true classic within the field of Archaeology. Wonderful information with copious photos and illustrations. Published in 1902. 303 illustrations! This copy is a solid 9. The only detractors being some wear on the cover. The pages and binding are perfect. I can't remember seeing a better copy. $80.

Primitive Man in Ohio - Warren K. Moorehead - #B-5

Description: This is the first arch book I ever purchased. Found it in the old Ohio Bookstore located in Downtown Cincinnati. I have since replaced it with a special copy given to me by a friend. This is another classic, published in 1892. It reads like a journal of Mooreheads explorations of Mounds and Village Sites in Ohio. The cover art is the incredible copper antler head dress, that is one of Ohio's signature discoveries. Copy is a 7-7.5. Some cover wear, binding is still good, but you need to take care when reading it. $75.
