We are pleased to announce the acquisition
of Geoscience Books, formerly of Libby, Montana,
effective August 1, 2006. Upper Midwest Geology and Natural History
Books has changed its name
accordingly and is now Geoscience Books. Since its inception in 1989 and under the stewardship
of its founder, Michael Cowan, Geoscience Books grew to become the most prominent internet-based
source for earth science
books. Michael is true gentleman and firm believer in customer care, and
that tradition will continue under our ownership.
The merging of our respective
stocks of books, bulletins, journals, atlases, offprints and
pamphlets that pertain to the earth sciences and related
subjects has created an inventory of
nearly 40,000 titles. It will take some time to catalog and enter into inventory
literature, and that work is continually in progress. This site (www.raregeologybooks.com)
will continue to host our online inventory.
We will continue the Geoscience Books tradition
of issuing quarterly, or more frequent, and
occasional subject-oriented web catalog sales. Most of our sales offer
significant discounts on
books, and we also have a "NEW ARRIVALS" page we update weekly. This, and links to
all our other
pages may be found at:
Want lists are always accepted. For now, please address inquiries to Phillip Huber at:
