All Our Yesterdays

All Our Yesterdays

Although people approach book collecting in myriad ways, one common unifying thread among collectors has to do with the way in which they began collecting: the memory of a book from their formative years, and the desire to own it again. The following selection was gathered with this in mind: books that have shaped thought, entertained us, provoked us, and made us better for having read them. This catalog was selected as the Pick of the Week by Ibookcollector when it was released in 2010.
