About Intangible Books

Intangible Books is a forty-year collection being slowly redistributed back into the market. The collection is strong in 20th century American literature, labor and proletarian history, western Americana, and rare ephemera. Listings will be added as time allows. Feel free to send inquiries.

Books are described according to ABAA standards (Fine, Near Fine, Very Good, Good, Fair). Pictures will accompany listings as much as possible. More photos always available on request. Questions welcome. The collector was quite picky, and the descriptions will reflect the same discerning eye.
