Our Holy Grail list of hard-to-find books is a short one, but it includes a couple of impossible items. Where, we wondered, would we ever find a first-edition copy of Shirley Jackson's Life Among the Savages, with the dust jacket, for less than a hundred clams? The Internet was no help. And would we ever cross off our list the rag-bound Ozma of Oz we'd been coveting for decades? We couldn't afford to go to our graves without these two titles, but we also couldn't afford to pay what most sellers (when they had copies, which was rare) were asking. Thanks to the courteous and intelligent antiquarians at By the Book, we can now die happy. Not only do we have these two rare titles in our collection now, but we also have the knowledge that, right here in our own town, we have a bookshop that will relentlessly search for what we covet until they find it. And we'll be able to afford it, because they listen when we talk book budgets. Filled with rare and unusual titles, this tidy Camelback storefront also buys book collections, offers free search services, and sends out a cool catalog several times a year. Hard-to-find, out-of-print, and rare books are By the Book.
