E-Mail : Click Here to Send us Mail... We Love to get Letters !!

Dear Friends:

The following on-line catalog is published to give you a feel for the type of books that are offered by "The Scriptorium". The catalog is badly out of date and the bookseller; Templar St. Arthur should be contacted for inquiries into what is currently in his collection. Professor St. Arthur has the role of Teacher during the day and has minimal time to keep the on-line catalog up to date and support our desire for rare and interesting books.

Professor of Mountaineering, Teacher, Bookseller, Eccentric Medievalist and Head Librarian of "The Scriptorium". Possibly the greatest living authority in the field of literature pertaining to Mountaineering and Exploration. What would Mountaineering be without the wonderful books that document our Quests and Communicate what we have Learned on the Mountain?

The name Scriptorium comes from Medieval times and is the name for the library in a Monastary.

We wanted to expose the Internet Community to the wealth of literature generated from the Community of Alpinists and give you the opportunity to deal with one of the legendary booksellers that you might not have had the pleasure to meet without the Internet.

Thanks for Listening.... Read Books and Climb "Forever !".....

Arthur von Boennighausen


The following books are mostly previously owned though a small number may be new from the publisher. Because of the nature of a secondary market the books are subject to prior sale. I might mention that an early call to reserve a title at the above phone number may help ensure its purchase. All books are returnable.

Condition is given on a scale; Fair - Good - Very Good [Minus] (VG-) - Very Good (VG) - Fine - As New, with Fair being a disbound book falling apart to As New being indistinguishable from a book on a new book store's shelf. When ratings are separated by a front slash (/) the first indicates the book's condition and the second, the Dust Jacket. When only one rating appears there is no Dust Jacket
