Default Old Books on Amazon

does anyone know of a decent way to find old books on amazon, not specific books but on a subject.

you can sort them by published date but they only give you them in order from newest to oldest and i can't figure out how to skip to the back of the list.


thanks

I found some, but I still search once in a while looking for anything that looks like it might be interesting.

Either, I have newer books but I like reading through the old stuff to.
