Vintage Books

Despite my appreciation for modern conveniences, including my Kindle and computer, books will always be my first love. There's just something about curling up in a big arm chair with a good solid book, turning the pages and savoring the story with a cup of tea that can't be duplicated with an electronic version. Our little book nook is packed with nearly 2,000 first editions, antiquarian and just great reading copies, with more being added every day. My specialty is history and biography, but there is a good selection of American and British fiction, a great children's section, many mysteries, westerns and some science fiction, medical books, religion, folklore and much more.

We also have a growing selection of vintage photographs and are working on getting the massive selection of antique documents into inventory at the shop.

I'm an avid reader and I frequently post book reviews on my personal blog, At the Top of Squirrel Spur. I'll also be posting reviews on the home page here along with notes on new acquisitions for the shop. Stop by and visit and we'll discuss books, vintage photographs and documents!
