Joe’s Library


Joe was an avid reader who gained insight and inspiration from his books. They became an important foundation for his own work. He treasured his books, but he did not treat them as too precious to use. He generously underscored and highlighted passages. He often listed topics on the back inside cover with page references for easy referral. There are also phone numbers, fragmented sentences and more.

Some books are covered in marginalia. In a few, Joe would even edit passages. Most of his books have been in his personal library since he originally purchased them – they range in date published from the 1950s to the 1990s.

Now, you can own a book or two of Joe’s, and perhaps get a glimpse into his thought processes and perspective regarding a wide array of subjects.

Please NOTE: All sales of Joe’s personal library are Final.
Thank you.
