Rare & Antiquarian Books

The Rare & Antiquarian Nook at Hills & Hamlets with library ladderWe have a thoughtful selection of our rare and antiquarian books at Hills & Hamlets' lovely antiquarian nook for your browsing pleasure, but we have a more extensive, fully catalogued and photographed collection housed online at our sister store's website, UndergroundBooks.Net



Our sister store's online shop is intended as a space to highlight our more uncommon and rare books for a wider audience than those who can visit in person at Adamson Square in Carrollton or the Textile Lofts at Serenbe. Our online inventory is housed at Underground Books in a private room. If you are a local collector and would like to see an item from our website, please contact us, and we would be pleased to transfer the item to either shop for your viewing convenience.
