Vintage

In our catalog, we consider an item as “vintage” when it is 30 years or older. We’ve grouped our books and textbooks under this category based on their physical ages (i.e., dates of publication, not necessarily that of copyright). Some of these items may be considered collectible for any number of reasons, such as they are now out of print or they are first editions, while others may still hold value and usability today, such as math textbooks.

Not only did Henry's reign stand out to later generations by contrast with the preceding troubles of Richard II and Henry IV, and the succeeding disasters of Henry VI, but Henry's almost miraculous conversion from wild youth to ideal king was an article of faith going back to chronicles contemporary with Henry himself. The king reborn from evil to good, and leading a heroic campaign to a famous victory, was irresistibly attractive." — A. R. Humphreys, Editor, in the Introduction

J. (H. W. Janson)
