E-Catalogue #8: Enlightened Times

Now that the nights are growing longer, we are pleased to announce our latest e-catalogue, Enlightened Times.  Combat winter doldrums and general taedium vitae with these sparkling 18th-century offerings.  The Age of Reason is well-represented across a variety of genres and languages, from figurative leading lights like Johnson, Swift, and Pascal to literal electricity (with bonus Jansenism vs. Jesuitry!).


“Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.” - Blaise Pascal, Pensées

"Ken is a great guy and the bookstore had that genuine feel. I would suggest it for anyone looking to escape the corporate bookstores."
