39 beautiful fold-out plates of apples, pears, grapes from the 18th century (1790). I love how these old paintings show the rust and mildew on the apples, much different than our usual supermarket fare! (The spotted apple pictured is from my own tree, and therefore all wormy, lol) $1500. #rarebooks #hookedonbooks #antiquebooks #coloredplates #botanicalplate #apples #historyofscience #horticulture #pomology #instabook #oldbook #illustratedbook #1700s #scientificillustration #eighteenthcentury #18thcentury
Your Oregon bookstore
Browsers’ Bookstore is a pair of open bookshops, six days a week, located fairly centrally in Oregon. We have lots of customers who make the trip (pilgrimage?) from Portland, Salem, Eugene, the Oregon Coast, and Eastern Oregon…and a few further afield. We hope you can find a way to make Browsers’ a regular stop.
Huge Book Sale!
2016 is our 15th Anniversary, so what better way to celebrate than by having a sale?
Friday, October 21st and Saturday, October 22nd : All books in stock are 30% off! Both stores, both days.
We’re now on Instagram
Follow us on Instagram to see some of our best books. (And our quirky books on #weirdbookwednesday)
Can’t make it to the bookstore?
If you don’t live in Oregon, or if we don’t have what you need in stock, you can order new books, movies, music, or ebooks at discounted prices using the link below. (We make a little commission, so you’re still helping us out.)
Thanks for supporting Browsers’ Bookstore!
