Welcome to the Illinois State Historical Sociey's online store. Over the years the Society has accumulated many books and since it is neither a research center nor a lending library, we have created this Store to make these books available for purchase. Most are single title items in like new condition. In addition to books, we are also offering for sale back issues of the Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society and Illinois Heritage, art work, and stationery. All proceeds from these sales will be used to support the Illinois State Historical Society.

*Most of the books for sale are new or very gently used and in extremely good condition.  If you have any specific questions, please feel free to call the office at 217-525-2781, Ext. 1.

On the cover: On July 23, 1912, the Illinois Traction System promoted its new parlor car service. The system emphasized that electrified rail meant no soot-stained clothing while riding the rear platform, as was common on competing steam railroads. The white dresses were there to hammer the point home. Courtesy of the Dale Jenkins Collection.
