About the Bookseller

We are a family group dealing with decades of parental and personal collections of older and more hard-to-find books, mostly dealing with California and its early history but branching out to cover most any subject that our boxes and trunks of books provide, and we have many more to go through yet. **+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+** Born and raised in the Chico, California area, we grew to appreciate the state's vast and varied history. Our primary family collection centers around California, the California Gold Rush, and particularly Northern California, Butte County, and Butte County's largest city - - Chico. We have a wide range of items on these subjects including smaller pamphlets and brochures. **+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+** We have made every effort to honestly describe the conditions of our books. There are often difficulties in determining the editions and printings of older books and again we have tried our best to accurately list each item. We surely would welcome any feedback from customers, collectors, and bibliophiles. **+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+** The image we have featured on our storefront illustrates Chico, California's famous Bidwell Mansion, home of John and Annie Bidwell, two among many illustrious early residents of California - - and the building is today a California State Historic Monument. **+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+** Contact - - jdbfamily1505@gmail.com
