Thee best in the area. A treasure trove. I've found so much rare beat literature in the past. I'm talking 'Tarantula' by Bob dylan. 'Kentucky Ham' by wsb jr... 'Baby Driver' Jan Kerouac. And that's one shelf. If you are passionate about books, this tops ANY chain every time. Michael is so kind and helpful, and easy going. My kind of atmosphere. I've spent hours in here. Not to mention a crazy good section devoted to antiquarian children's books ! Maps, scrolls, showbills, ephemera ad infinitum!! a truly classic st petersburg landmark & treasure in its own right.

Michael was so helpful and interesting today when we desired to find out more about an old book Bob's father had amongst his treasures. Bob is is undecided what he wants to do with it but now knows m...ore. The store is chock full of really interesting rare books and maps and Michael is a wealth of information.

We certainly recommend the store or owner!

This is a place for true bibliophiles. Not just used books but some rate treasures. There's a particularly good "old Florida " section which my husband enjoyed. Lots of local restaurants within easy w...alking distance, so make a day of it. See More

We love books and soon I will get a chance to come in your store to look for history books and literature.

One of the genuine places to shop for unusual books and rare editions in St. Petersburg
RARE BOOK :15 — Another in our series of 15-second Instagram features on rare books. Illustrator Margaret Armstrong’s distinctive Art Nouveau book covers frequently featured plants or vines, reflecting her interest in nature. She often made the gold-stamped areas of a design both glossy and matte, producing a striking effect. Dunbar collaborated with members of the mostly white Hampton Institute Camera Club to produce dignified images of average rural African Americans as a counterpoint to traditional plantation literature. #rarebooks #rarebooksflorida
