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 used 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.
Yes we are open regular hours on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Much to my regret, Gerry is proceeding along his route to retirement.
Thank you to everyone who dropped off resumes and who have been (or will soon be) subjected to one of my crazy interviews. The application process is closed, and you will soon see our newest team member (still deciding…)
We’re now on Instagram

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!
If you love Browsers’ (which I’m sure you do), you might also like some of our fellow members of the Cascade Booksellers Association. (This is the organization that puts on the annual book fair in Portland.) Buying local really does make a huge difference in our community.
