A good book should leave you ... slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it. - William Styron

Good books are like close friends, they comfort you, they are there when you need them, they let you use them, and they don't hurt you a bit. - David Ray Smith

I collect old books. Especially unusual, uncommon, and unique books. Some categories of old books that interest me are: Early American History; Late 1700's Tennessee History; Historical Novels; Early American Presidents (especially Jefferson); Books illustrated by N. C. Wyeth; Classics; Westerns (Louis L'Amour, Zane Grey, Cameron Judd); and books by or about Thomas Paine. Books by Tennessee writers are also of interest.

What books have you found especially interesting and do you have some that you would like to sell. If so, please contact me at D. Ray Smith or through my guestbook on this page.
