Connecting History Lovers to Historic Texts
The Hudson River Maritime Museum is pleased to announce a new and exciting collection to its Museum Store offerings. Academics, amateur historians and history lovers are invited to shop the museum’s new rare and used book selection.
Previously donated books handpicked by the Hudson River Maritime Museum’s Collections Department are now available for sale. These books cover important Hudson River history including steamboats, lighthouses, tugboats, and maritime and local history. Each purchase made in the Museum Store helps the museum to preserve and interpret the history of the Hudson River, its tributaries and its related industries.
The Hudson River Maritime Museum’s rare and used book sale includes out of print editions of popular titles, hard to find historical texts, and primary source material. All books included in the sale are duplicates from the museum’s archives and collections.
“We are so excited that the public can browse these fascinating books,” says Executive Director Lisa Cline. “What better way to connect to the history of the river than with these books written by famous local and regional historians and authors.”
The Hudson River Maritime Museum is now accepting book donations. Hudson River history books will be considered for inclusion in the museum’s research library. General maritime histories and triplicates will be included in the book sale. All proceeds benefit the museum. To donate a book, please contact Collections Manager and Digital Archivist Carla Lesh at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the book sale, please contact Membership and Museum Store Manager Joclyn Wallace at email@example.com.
