The Pistachio Nut has a pleasant & mild flavor, comes from a small tree, keeps well on account of having a kernel that's encased in a thin protective film (a "pellicles"), it's been cultivated since for thousands of years, it was originally brought back to Rome by Lucius Vitellius. All of these facts are according to Nuts: Their Production & Everyday Uses by F.N. Howes (Faber & Faber, 1948). This is one of the many books that grace the shelves at Wm. H. Adams Antiquarian Books. This lovely bookstore is stocked full with amazing rare and treasured books, lovingly curated by Diana & Bill, a husband and wife team. Bill was a physician. After he retired, he decided to try to bind medical journal articles together and took an immediate interested in the craft of book-binding. After created medical books, he practiced his newfound art on Shakespeare. Bill & Diane are friendly, kind, and clearly love their books, bringing many of them back from the UK when they visit. There is a lot to check out here and several other bookstores in the small town of Hobart. Wm. H. Adams Antiquarian Books has everything from law to medicine to history and much much more. My favorite was their large selection of historical cookbooks. Be sure to stop by for a visit.

Went off season in the cold and drizzle. Not every store was open, but all very friendly Owners of one shop opened up a closed one so we could look around. Found some great books and had a good time. We will go back on a weekend when it is warmer. Tiny little town in the middle of nowhere but so many bookstores to poke around in!

If you love books - both old and new - then this is a great spot to visit. The bookstores are spread out down the main road and offer a wonderful variety of books and related items. The shop owners were all very friendly and helpful. Take time to check out each shop as they all offer something different.

I visited Hobart to enjoy a local tavern and only discovered this book village by accident. The store owners were friendly and enthusiastic about their merchandise and their village. I loved the town and will be back again soon. Some vendors as well as the local tavern are closed some times of the year. Check ahead!
