Fields Book 
Store - Soulful and scholarly books from the world's spiritual traditions

 

New Catalog Number 97 from Pratum Book Company -- "History Folklore Religion Philosophy"

Pratum Catalog 97

Those of you who spent any time at Fields Book Store between our 75th Anniversary remodelling in 2007 and our closing in 2013 will be familiar with Pratum Book Company. At that time we entered into a consignment partnership with Todd Pratum, an esoteric book dealer since 1981, and featured a great many of his books on our shelves. The books ranged from rare antiquarian tomes bound in vellum to unusual scarce works of scholarship or esoteric experience to well-selected and attractively priced paperbacks.

Todd Pratum is well-known for his incredibly well-researched catalogs of book offerings which he has been issuing over the decades. He has just issued Catalog Ninety-Seven. As Fields Book Store has partnered with Todd for a number of these catalogs in the past, we would like to promote his new catalog even though he is working independently on this one. It features an excellent selection of well-chosen books, and a wealth of knowledge about both the books and the subject matter.

Regardless of whether you are looking for inexpensive items such as David Standish's history of ideas about the "Hollow Earth" or something as rare as Ephriam George Squier's "Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley" from 1848, you will find much of value here.

You can find the Pratum Book Company web site here (where you can sign up for his mailing list), and Catalog Ninety-Seven itself here. There are images from the Catalog on Tumblr here.

Please note, all inquiries about books and sales in Catalog Ninety-Seven should go to Pratum Book Company (knowledge@pratum.com) and not Fields Book Store.
