Vintage Books

Stack of vintage books

What is a vintage book? These are books that recall a certain time and place, that evoke a feeling of the past. They may be, but aren't strictly antiquarian books. We at Roundabout find pleasure in the many varieties of old books, from Victorian literature with intricate cloth bindings, to the strange culinary delights of midcentury cookbooks, to the technology of the future, as described in volumes of the 1980s.

Roundabout keeps an extensive collection of vintage books in store, and new additions are added weekly to this collection. Most of our vintage books are not currently catalogued, so a visit to the shop is essential for old book lovers. We maintain a few loose categories of old books:

  • Fiction and literature published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries
  • Vintage children's books
  • Leather and fine bindings
  • Vintage science and technical writing
  • Vintage religious works

Please visit the shop, or call us, if you are looking for something specific. We also are able to catalog some of our vintage offerings:
