Store Description

We are a privately owned rare and out-of-print bookstore situated in the village of historic Kingston, Rhode Island, in an historic 1897 building that previously housed a general store. The store is located close to the entrance to The University of Rhode Island and is open daily. The store contains approximately 15,000 books, in a large variety of subject categories, as well as a collection of old postcards. The bookstore also has a selection of antique prints from hand-colored flowers and birds to chromolithographs and etchings and engravings. They may be viewed at abgbooks.com. The prints are matted and shrinkwrapped. I am a member of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Booksellers Association, MARIAB.
