Here are my chums' site and I endorse it mightily.
You can get most any book from them.

These people also have a superb second hand book section where one can find many fine treasures.

I visited New York some 2 years ago and spent some time in the business of this dealer of rare bookshttps://www.churchillbooks.com/. Upon some idle chit-chat whilst I broused I was then lead to a basement storeoom where an Aladdins cave of second hand books awaited. After being left to brouse further I finally returned to the surface with an armfull of books sufficient to cause me concern as to my baggage allowance for the flight home. Perhaps I should detail said books in another thread.
New York is wonderful for books, or at least it was in my past experience.
I could find a picture of the nice white SS uniform of Hans Heinrich Lammers:

I got an e-reader last year. The thing crapped out on me exactly one week after I bought it. Real books don't just up and crap out on you. I'm from a generation that should embrace such gadgets, but nothing beats a real book. Especially old books. Their smell, the crack of a spine... It's a way more satisfying experience for sure.
Another thing you won't find in an e-reader is cool mementos of the past such as I found in one of the books I bought from Chartwell booksellers.
John Tolland's 1966 edition of 'The Last 100 Days' contained an unusal bookmark in the form of a cheque to the value of $5 made out by a Major R.J. Tocci of Fort Benning Georgia dated Dec 13, 1972.
A different type of uniform, though; it's the white summer tunic. These have been discussed here:

And I'll third that...
(Although I, too, own an e-reader as well. Much interesting material can be found online for free in .pdf- or .epub format, and by that I don't mean illegal scans of copyrighted works, but everything from published theses to older literature with lapsed copyright that is now in the public domain.)
Ohh, e-readers are brilliant, but there is just something about a 'real' book.
Re-reading a favourite book is like greeting an old friend.
