For New Year’s – Vintage Cocktail Book Reprints

Our first shipment of this hard-to-find line of vintage cocktail book reprints sold out quickly at Christmas. We just got new copies in, and in time for New Year’s. These are very detailed facsimiles of rare cocktail books published from the 1860s to the 1940s, with new introductions by leading cocktailians. The publisher is a […]

Now it's all but certain that the plant is closed for good, ending a chapter in our local history. Since the mill manufactured the raw materials for paper and Eureka […]

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

The Works of Edward Bulwer Lytton, complete in nine volumes, circa 1885. Lord Lytton is hardly a household name today, but he was one of the most popular writers of the late 19th century, famous for prose as ornate as the Victorian architecture of the era. He is not widely read today, but you know […]

This is our second show of Irvine's botanical illustrations, and once again, we're inviting growers to the store for an apple tasting on Saturday, […]


Owning a Bookshop Makes Jonathan Lethem Very Happy

Author Jonathan Lethem, in a Time magazine interview (via Shelf Awareness) Time: Is it true you own a bookstore? Letham: Yeah. I'm part proprietor of a small used-book store in Maine. I don't really own the building. I guess I sort of own the books until someone comes along and buys them. I'm like the […]
