Our database is updated daily to eliminate sold items and add new acquisitions. If you have any questions or comments, or if you are seeking something specific, feel free to email your questions to

The vast majority of our used, hard to find and out-of-print books are in Very Good to Fine condition.

We usually make our daily post office run about 3:00 p.m. (noon on Saturdays). So orders arriving by 2:00 CST are frequently shipped that same day.

How to Order

You may use the secure shopping cart on this site (log-in required).

Or send us an email info@indybooklady.comincluding the Title and Inventory Number. Because of our hearing impairments we much prefer to be contacted by email. We do accept many telephone orders at 317-259-1472. Just be prepared to try to accommodate our problem by speaking slowly and repeating numbers and names. We generally respond to email inquiries within a few hours.

Search Tips

Quick Search

Title, Author, and Description are `AND` searches, meaning that only those records which contain ALL the words will be shown. Keyword is an `OR` search, meaning that all records that contain ANY of the words will be shown. The Keyword search looks in all the book record fields: Author, Title, Description, etc. Because of this, the Keyword search may return listings that don't seem to match your search criteria. When using the Keyword search, it is best to limit your search to just a few words (one or two is best).

Advanced Search Tips:

Less is more: for best results type only the author's last name, or only the main words in the title. To search by publisher or keyword, follow the same rule. For example, to find books on Performing Arts, type only the word performing in the Keywords field.

Keyword hint: If nothing comes up in your Keyword search, try searching synonyms, related terms, or alternate spellings.

To browse by topic: Click on one of the Category links at left to view selections of our stock in that topic. The list at left is for our specialties, click on 'View Other Categories' to see a complete list of subject areas.

To find more items: Even if you have already browsed by category, a Keyword search will often bring up more items because each item has multiple Keywords but may only be sorted into one or two subcategories.

If you still aren't able to locate items that you think we might have, use either the email link or the 'Offline Search Service' form to let us know of your interests. We answer every request, even if we can only tell you that we don't currently have that item or perhaps direct you to another seller.

Our Selection

IndyBookLady stocks high quality used books about very specific subjects. We buy the private libraries of professionals and advanced hobbyists. We also carry interesting music and songbooks, videos of the best movies, and audio books. As former antique dealers we’re particularly drawn to old advertising, ephemera, collectible and antiquarian books. As Depression Era country people, we learned early to do-it-yourself, and since every DIY project starts with a design or technical manual, we've become connoisseurs of the genre.

We are the proud grandparents of NINE university students, and some of their middle-aged parents are still taking classes as well. We try to turn their used textbooks before the next tuition bill is due. We admonish them, but they all highlight & marginalize; at least our descriptions say so. In return for this listing service, each of them comes in every holiday with boxes of specialized scholarly books from their various professional fields.

History and Political Science are amongst our larger categories, so we encourage you to browse our subcategories by clicking the category and then clicking into the subcategories.

Our Cookbookselection tends toward the very specific. You'll find the very popular Junior League Cookbooks as well as recipe books, biographies, and essays by the leading food writers.

Check with us often if you’re interested in highly technical handbooks in Science and Technology. These books are expensive, hard to find, and they frequently turn very quickly.

We’re quite proud of our Religion & Spirituality shelves, where you will find breadth! We have books on the full range of Christianity & Christian Life, Bible Study, Theology, Religious Music, Roman Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and even the Occult Sciences. Many of these are our oldest selections and their condition and description are very important to collectors, so we try particularly hard to describe these older titles in great detail. Check our FAQ page for details about how we determine condition, and feel free to email us with questions. Collectors, if you suspect that we may have mis-described the printing details of one of these early editions, please share with us your more specialized knowledge.
