Booksmith Timeless Classics are the "Best of the Best". They include Pulitzer Prize winners and unknown authors; titles with world-wide appeal and those with a mini audience.
What they all have in common is our connection. We brought some back in print, published a few, and discovered the rest. Almost all are only available at The Alabama Booksmith.
These very special treasures have now become part of our mission - to put them in the hands of readers and collectors with good taste.
Most of our regulars already own signed copies, so to encourage purchasing them as appreciated presents, we will gift wrap, enclose a special card, and ship anywhere in the United States – absolutely free.
Make a list of friends and family who will love a thoughtful surprise and let them wonder how you were able to get the author to sign their timeless classic.
Our Classic Book of the Week has been hailed by critics nationwide as one of the best ever written on the subject of slavery.
Inspired by the historic Sarah Moore Grimké, the story begins in 1803 when an eleven-year-old white child of privilege in Charleston receives ownership of a ten-year-old slave. The unforgettable struggle for liberty, empowerment and expression will move every reader. This pristine signed first edition is a must for any complete library.
Remember, we’ll gift wrap, enclose a Booksmith Timeless Classic card, and mail it anywhere in America for free. Click “ADD TO CART to send signed first editions around the country, and we’ll pick up the tab for mailing. Be sure to let us know how you want the enclosed cards to read.
