Books for collectors (SIGNED AND FIRST EDITIONS), readers, and lovers of unique & nostalgic books. Nostalgic Books and Elements LLC, NB&E, prides itself on rescuing unique and nostalgic books that sometimes include an element. I provide detailed descriptions, multiple photographs, and wrap most dust jacket in a protective sleeve.
Books are noted as either SIGNED or INSCRIBED accordingly. If the book is a remainder or ex-library it is noted. I seldom, if ever, sell these types of books. I CHERISH books and want to provide you with the books you will be proud to own.
With gratitude, Janice Dawson
NOSTALGIC - "Thinking fondly of a past time."
That is how NB&E got started. I found a photo of me as a little girl reading. I remembered that day and felt nostalgic. I was reading while my parents played tennis. I even recalled images of the quaint little bookstore where I found Beyond The Pawpaw Trees. Both the photo and the first edition book now sit on a shelf near my bedside reminding me of my childhood. And in case you hadn't notice, I wasn't too happy about being interrupted from reading for the photo. What a face!
ELEMENTS - A little something extra to tell the book's story.
Every now and then, a little something "extra" is found to go with a book. For example, this Richard Brautigan book comes with a newspaper clipping about his mysterious death. Brautigan was "...a hero of the '60s counterculture.." He was only 49 when he died of a gunshot wound. "Brautigan roamed San Francisco's famed Haight-Ashbury section during the height of the flower-child era,..." Having this article about the author made this book extra special. Thus, elements became a part of NB&E.
