"A New Look at Old Books"

Robert Frost and New Hampshire Themed Highlights to Rock the Upcoming Granite State Book and Ephemera Fair!

"If the book is second-hand, I leave all its markings intact, the spoor of previous readers, fellow-travellers who have recorded their passage by means of scribbled comments, a name on the fly-leaf, a bus ticket to mark a certain page." -- Alberto Manguel, "The Library at Night"


Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.
- Henry David Thoreau


the smell
the touch
the wonder
the words

Old books exert a strange fascination for me -- their smell, their feel, their history; wondering who might have owned them, how they lived, what they felt." - Lauren Wiggen

The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television.  ~Andrew Ross

 A book is
a garden,
an orchard,
a storehouse,
a party,
a company by the way,
a counselor,
a multitude of counselors.

|~Henry Ward Beecher

"There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love."
- Christopher Morley


Books are
 immortal sons deifying their
sires.  ~Plato

 I would be most content if  my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists
mostly of building enough bookshelves.  ~Anna Quindlen, "Enough Bookshelves


"Lord! when you sell a man a book you don’t sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue -- you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night -- there’s all heaven and earth in a book, a real book."
Christopher Morley, "Parnassus on Wheels"  


And we love

The New Hampshire Antiquarian Booksellers Association (NHABA)
is an association of persons and businesses engaged in the selling of rare
and out-of-print books.   It was formed to promote activities of mutual
benefit and to provide the general public with information on Association members and the books they sell.
 We sponsor an Annual Book Fair each year and publish
and distribute gratis a brochure describing the Association members
and their stocks of books
