ABOUT HILLCREST BOOKS
Selling windows on our past...
Let's say you want to learn about electro-medical belts, or coffee mills from 1890, or blacksmithing, or buggy building, or . . . maybe you're a teacher and you want to give your students a real look at the Industrial Revolution. You can find all this and more in antique books and trade catalogs and other paper collectibles. Even in the information age, some of this knowledge would be lost without these original materials. The place to find these treasures is Hillcrest Books, Crossville, Tennessee. You live in Shaktoolik, Alaska? Not to worry. We do all our business by mail.
Some of our customers are libraries, some are corporate archives, and others are individual collectors. All share a love of these rare, old tomes and papers: an 1890 medical supply catalog, a 1912 Boston play bill, a 1930 Aldens department store catalog, a 1970 Sears catalog (how could we have dressed like that?). Customer service is Hillcrest’s forte. We keep a data base of each customer’s interests and quote individual items as they become available, so be sure to send us your "want list." Of course, satisfaction is always guaranteed!
