About Higginson Book Company

Higginson Book Company has been providing archival-quality reprints of rare and out of print genealogies, local histories and Civil War regimentals for over 40 years. Our goal is to help preserve the information contained within these old and often disintegrating books by offering modern reprints which can be enjoyed for many years to come.

The photo below shows the poor condition of an original copy of "Sherman's March Through the South" (1865) and the new, archival-quality hardcover reprint which is sure to last much, much longer!

Our books are printed on archival quality, acid free paper and are available in either hardcover or softcover binding.

  • Hardcovers are "Class A" archival, featuring heavy duty end-boards, acid-free end papers, sturdy spines and a durable buckram cloth binding available in a variety of colors.
  • Softcovers are glue-bound or staple bound, depending on the length of the book. Covers are printed on 110lb standard gray card stock.
