non-woodworking books for sale


For I-don’t-know-how-many-years this household did a lot of research into 17th-century topics. Mine of course, was focused on furniture and woodworking; Maureen was a generalist. She left the museum field before I did, about 9 years ago now. We were cleaning & sorting through some boxes today and found some books that someone might like. I listed them on Amazon – but…if anyone out there is interested, we can sort it out. Sorry there’s no woodworking or furniture – I kept all those. you never know when I might get back to writing furniture history…
