Museum of Weird Books


Over the years of selling books we've uncovered some gems that have made us laugh for one reason or another. Either there is a naïveté that strikes us as outmoded in our postmodern society or the earnest intentions of the publisher seems forced to our liberal minds. We present these titles to you without malice nor do we mock the creators of these choice documents...we merely wonder at the world that produces the inexplicable need that these various publications seem to fill.

We would also like to point out they are not for the faint of heart. Although all the texts are presented in a straightforward, non-prurient manner, some of the subject matter is, how should we say, of a mature nature. Proceed with your own judgment and good taste.
