Greetings and welcome to the website of geology-books.com, a rare and out of print book store owned by Ed and Mary Rogers. We have been serving the needs of the collector of rare and out of print geoscience books and rare and out of print western Americana and exploration books for 25 years. Our client base consists of professionals and amateurs in the geological sciences and history of the sciences, explorations and travels as well as libraries and museums.
Ed is a retired geologist and has his own collection of rare works in the geological sciences as well as a collection of reference works on the history of science and the history of explorations. Mary has over 35 years experience as an archivist and professional graphics designer. She insures the works sold are complete and ready to be used by the purchaser.
If a book warrants a new leather or vellum binding, we use a bookbinder who has only a few select clients. Our binder learned the trade in the U. K. by studying under the binder and archivist for the Royal Family. All of his work is done using strictly archival materials.
Our inventory of rare books for sale includes: rare and out of print books in: geology, stratigraphy, structural geology, volcanology, mining, mineralogy, gemology, meteoritics, invertebrate paleontology, vertebrate paleontology, paleobotany, micropaleontology, early explorations and travels, western Americana, early atlases and maps, and important works in other fields of natural history.
We also buy collections of rare books from single volumes to libraries. If you are considering selling your collection, please send us a list of your material.
Our web site is viewable by categories of books and searchable by keyword, author, or title. A secure shopping cart is available for purchases and we accept all major forms of credit cards and Paypal.
You can click on any of the categories listed on the left side of our home page to view works in that category. Once you enter a category of books you can click on the title of a work to read a full description of the book. Many of the books listed also include photographs which can be viewed.
If you have any suggestions on how the site can be improved please feel free to contact us.
