Two volumes of The Poetical Works of Robert Browning from 1897 sit within GOHD Books, the only sign of their age marked by brown specks on their well-kept bodies.
The rest of the bookstore is similar, with an eclectic – and rare – selection of titles purchased through online auctions. These include leather-bound biographies, fairy tale tomes, books on
natural history and folkore, and translated classics like Don Quixote that remain in almost perfect condition. Equally notable are works on observations of the world, whether an 1886 study on the gypsies of India or a written documentation of Borneo natives from 1927. Prices start from around $56.
