  Old/second-hand botanical books
From: "Greg Ruckert" <greg at ezi-learn.com.au> on 1998.12.12 at 17:44:52(2812)
Can anyone suggest a good source for old/out of print/second-hand botanical
books?
Email me direct rather than to the list please (Unless any one else is
interested of course).

Merry Christmas to all aroid nuts.

Greg,

This guy in California is very good. He specializes in books botanical. The
dealer is:

Brooks Books
PO Box 21473
Concord CA 94521

Phone: 510 672-4566

Owned by Phil & Martha Nesty

They publish a catalog a couple tomes a year, and they will do searches.
I have purchased from them a couple of times and have not been disappointed.
He handles credit card transactions so I imagine he will ship overseas.
