Books for Sale from our Library

Books from our library


The Printery has related book collections and we are at a point in our life where we’ve decided it is time to downsize our collections. Below you’ll find links to PDF files that list available books by category. We’ll be updating these lists as required and will indicate an updated list is in place when that happens.

You may see an entry appear on more than one list. That’s because some books fit rather neatly into more than one category. It does not mean we have more than one copy of the title. When we do have a duplicate copy, that fact is indicated on the list entry.

These books from our library would appeal to typographers, printers, and book collectors with varying interests. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis and will be shipped after payment is received. We cannot accept credit cards, but will accept checks or PayPal. We typically ship via USPS Priority Mail, so the shipping cost will vary, depending on the size of the box necessary and insurance, if required. We’ll certainly work with you to use the shipping method you prefer and will try to keep your costs for shipping as low as possible. If you are interested in any of these publications, have any questions, or would like any further information about any of these books, please send an email to proprietor@theprinterybooks.com.

By the way, we have borrowed very heavily, so to speak, from other sources for the brief description at the beginning of some entries, just in case some of you may not be familiar with that designer/printer/engraver.
