---------------------------------------------------------------- for general info:

You can anonymous ftp to get lists of mail-order books/catalog /pub/usenet/news.answers/books/stores/ship-by-mail /pub/usenet/news.answers/books/catalogues

There are some really great items in here!

-------------------------------------------------------------- First some academic booksellers:

The Scholars Bookshelf 110 Melrich Rd. Cranbury, NJ 08512

Scholar's Source/ Eisenbrauns, P.O. Box 275, Winona Lake, IN 46590- 0275, (219) 269-2011: Eisenbraun's publishes secular academic books on the ancient Near East, including Biblical Israel. They also sell similar books from other publishers under the name Scholars Source, including some second hand items, which go fast. Most of their books from other publishers are sold at a 10 to 20 percent discount.

Seminary Cooperative Bookstore (Chicago Theological Seminary (58th Street and University Avenue, 1-800-777-1456). "Has a good theological section but its only connection with the Seminary is that it rents space from them. It is, in my opinion, the best academic bookstore in the social sciences and humanities in the world, for English-language books at any rate. Anyone can shop there, but members receive a 10% discount on most books and may special-order books from anywhere in the world. Membership costs $30 (for three shares of stock)." (Ask them for further details.) They will ship worldwide. "Books arrive well- packaged and I've never gotten a damaged one."

------------------------------------------------------- And here, some more strictly Islamic booksellers:
