Old scholars never die …

… they just stop adding to their libraries.

Seriously, today we visited an excellent used bookstore and added to our personal library the following:

The History of American Sailing Ships by Howard I. Chapelle;
Dams and Other Disasters: A Century of the Army Corps of Engineers in Civil Works by Arthur E. Morgan;
The Royal Navy: A History from the Earliest Times to 1900, Vol. 2, by William Laird Clowes;
A History of Mexico by Henry Bamford Parkes;
The Triumphant Empire: The Rumbling of the Coming Storm, 1766-1770, Vol. XI of The British Empire Before the American Revolution, by Lawrence Henry Gipson;
The Dutch Seaborne Empire, 1600-1800 by C. R. Boxer;
The Spanish Empire in America by C. H. Haring;
The History of the American Sailing Navy: The Ships and Their Development by Howard I. Chappelle;
Atlantic America, 1492-1800, Vol. I, The Shaping of America: A Geographical Perspective on 500 Years of History by D. W. Meinig;

All useful and important books that we actually need.  Or most of them, anyway.  Average price: $4.  We really love used book stores.
