Welcome to The Prints & The Paper. Some of our specialties include Agriculture, Technical Books, Americana, Art, Photography, Ephemera, First Edition Modern Poetry, and Book Arts, but you will find books in many other categories as well.


You can locate specific items in our inventory using the search box, or you can browse through our listngs by topic. Use the Browse Categories link on the menu bar to see the catalogs representing our inventory. Click on a category and a list of subcategories on that subject will appear. Click on any of these subcategories and our listings will show up. You may have to scan down the page to see some of the subcategory lists. This is an excellent way to locate only those items that are of particular interest to you.

We are always interested in working with collectors, archives, museums, libraries, and other collections to enhance their holdings. On request, we will quote items that may be of interest prior to listing them. This usually represents a savings to our customers, since we do not have to invest time and money in on-line listing.

Our holdings are far more extensive than is represented on-line. We are particularly keen on ephemera of cultural history interest, including maps, photographs, significant post cards, advertising, brochures, pamphlets, magazines, etc. Please contact us if you have general or specific needs.

The Prints & The Paper is a modest, mostly home-based business. It is run, in fact, by ye cataloger, Lee (spousal unit Gary maintains he is the 'fetcher and toter' of the team). My catalog entries often include some wry commentary and humble personal opinions, which some folks find amusing and no doubt others think annoying. Take a look at some of them and judge for yourself!

We're a bit quirky, but never stuffy or elitist. Your questions, queries, and orders will be answered in a prompt, friendly, and courteous manner. E-mail inquiries are easiest for us to deal with, but hey -- do what works for you. We are adamant in preserving the ethics and standards of the traditional bookselling trade. Our packing is superior and our shipping is prompt. Our greatest asset is our customers and we try to provide the very best in personal and professional customer service.

Sears, Roebuck Company, Illustrated by: Color and B&W Illustrations   Sears, Roebuck and Co. Midsummer SALE Catalog, 1928  Publisher: Sears, Roebuck and Co. Philadelphia 1928. Pale green paper wraps with bright colorful sale items pictured, including an "Autogas" gasoline range on the back cover (inside back cover advertises a lethal-looking coal oil stove at 35 dollars). This is NOT a reproduction - the original vintage catalog is in very good condition! How about those long bathing suits for women ..real silk stockings for men, children, and infants. Lots of fabrics, housewares, appliances, underwear, shoes (a couple of styles I wish they'd bring back!), electric fans (watch your fingers!), camping stuff, typefwriter, clocks, horse saddle and harness sets, horse-drawn farming equipment, furniture, AND the kitchen sink (well, self-contained cabinets and ice boxes). Prices are, of course, pretty unbelievable. This catalog in 9-1/4 by 7 inches, 124 pages plus covers. Covers have color illustrations both sides, and there are several color pages sprinkled throughout. A few small age spots and some mild edgewear to the cover, otherwise a very nice, clean, tight catalog without marks or damage.
