New Arrivals: Altemus Editions!
On the heels this week's poetry haul comes a very large collection of Altemus books (600+).
Altemus began publishing books in Philadelphia in the mid-19th century. They published bibles, gift and keepsake editions of classic and popular literature of the day, eventually focusing on juvenile fiction not unlike the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series. Most of the titles in the shop range in price from $10 to $20.
These books, and thousands of others, can be purchased from:
709 South Fourth Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147
215 592 1207
Open every day, 11am to 7pm.
We accept Visa, MC, Amex, Paypal and cash.
