    Loomis books for sale

    I found this out when I went there for another anatomy book but if you have a cool 50$ lying around, Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon, has original copies of most, if not all, of Loomis' books.

    (I, honestly, don't like Loomis much so that's why I didn't get one.)

    Amazon has the re-issued books, all 3, for under $40 bucks.

    Those are re-issues though. These are the real deal.

    I couldn't say, seeing as I've never read the re-prints. I posted this mainly for fellow nostalgia-fags such as myself who'd rather have an original (the book I went there to purchase is 57 years old because it's from the original print run) instead of a re-print.

    Well, the books are to be used for study and having a newer re-issue (and it is the same info) would be better for that purpose, but I feel ya on owning the original.
