Not Your Average Bookstore Event

Last November, we invited local apple farmers into the store for Arts Alive, a monthly Old Town arts event. They sliced apples from their orchard and one of Eureka Books' co-owners, Peggy Irvine, exhibited her wonderful colored pencil portraits of local Humboldt apples.  What a night!


Just In – World War Two Posters

We just acquired 50 or more World War II posters. What's a little sexist stereotyping if it was good for the war effort? Stop in and take a look. Priced from $15.


Local Author Barbara Kerley in the New York Times

 Kudos to local author Barbara Kerley for the great review in the New York Times. We've got signed copies in the store, but we don't expect them to last, so get down here now if you want one.  With the Obama girls moving into the White House, this book is a great way to get […]

Botanical Atrocities

So once again, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society is teetering on the brink and has turned to selling off rare books to make ends meet (or more accurately, pay their **creditors** 30 cents on the dollar). On December 11, at Sotheby's, at least six rare botanicals will be going on the block. This deaccessioning has been […]


We Were Robbed

While neglecting my own blog recently, I have signed on as a guess blogger at Foreword Magazine. I wrote about a recent theft at my bookstore, and the lesson I'm taking from it. Philobiblos isn't impressed.


How Cool Is Blogging

All the big ad agencies are developing blog strategies for their clients. Apparently, if your product hasn't been mentioned in a blog, you're on the road to bankruptcy. Yesterday, my wife and I received FIVE – count 'em, 5 – green boxes with odd labels. Actually, two were addressed to Fine Books contributors, two to […]


London Illustrated News

Just in: Nineteen bound volumes of the Illustrated London News, the most elaborate British news magazine of the 19th century. Each weekly issue had dozens of engravings and many had large, fold-out maps and views of far-off cities. The bound volumes (dating from the 1850s, 1880s, and 1890s, each contain roughly 26 weekly issues). We’ve […]

Vintage Shasta Photos

Since there are so few antiquarian bookstores north of San Francisco, we at Eureka Books are trying to expand our holdings in materials related to the entire region between Santa Rosa and Eugene. Along with the A.W. Ericson photos we lucked into recently, we also picked up five Charles Miller images taken just over the […]


Vintage A.W. Ericson Prints

Pardon my Internet slang, but OMG! We just acquired four vintage A.W. Ericson albumen photographs dating from the 1890s, each with a handwritten caption. Two of the image are iconic Humboldt County pictures, which have been reproduced endlessly, but very few originals survive. These are behind the desk – they just arrived on Friday afternoon […]


Book Expo

I'm in Los Angeles today, getting ready to head out for my second day at BEA (Book Expo America), the annual convention that brings together publishers, bookstore owners, and everyone else interested in the new-book trade. It fills the LA convention center. The coolest thing for me was seeing Fine Books among the two-dozen or […]
