The Bookman

Always nice, it is, to receive the red-clad catalog from The Military Bookman, and their 77th is no exception, filled as it is with so many secondhand military books including those in WWII-related categories such as the Luftwaffe, the Eastern front, espionage in the Second World War, the Spanish Civil War, and more.

Articles of War
5 January 2000

Bob Ruman of Articles of War, still in Illinois for the moment, sends more details about his impending move. The shop in Skokie will be locking its doors permanently later this month so remaining inventory can be packed. The actual move to New Mexico will take place in February, but there will be some further downtime while the new location is finished. In the meantime, because of the ongoing packing operations, only secondhand titles are available at the Articles website, and they will go off-line at the end of January. Sales -- mail and Net-based orders only, no shop -- will resume when everything is ready in New Mexico, probably in May.
