Where to Find Rare BooksLocal libraries regularly conduct book sales. For the historian, attending these sales sometimes turns up surprises. There are still books in public hands dating from the mid 1800s. They are very rare and fragile, but are disposed of by libraries for that same reason and the fact that the modern age no longer considers such books as essential to learning. Sometimes libraries have duplicates of genealogy books which are placed in the sale.
