Persephone BooksSee more
"What are all those books with grey covers?"
I discovered Persephone Books, from London, in 1999. Their mission, to re-publish books, mostly by women, that were “unjustly out of print” resulted in a trove of wonderful novels and non-fiction works, each enjoyable in its own special way.
Persephone titles here many are favorites, and some are the latest releases. When you look inside the front cover you will see printed a textile that is from the time period of the original printing, and a bookmark slipped inside. Descriptions of all of the books are in the comments when you click on each book-- and in the catalogues you can find in store.
They have travelled a long way to be here; I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
New York Review Books / ADULTSee more
NYRB Classics is a list of fiction and non-fiction works for all ages and from around the world. While some books are original, like Persephone, many of these books have been out of print and rescued by the NYRB editor. It has been called "a marvelous literary imprint ... that has put hundreds of wonderful books back on our shelves." We have our most favorite in stock and will place orders for the ones we don't happen to have.
What are all those books with red spines?See more
Some of my most favorite books for children, and books to read aloud, have been republished by the NYRB imprint. These books, mostly with red spines, can be found in our classics section at the bookshop.
The Merritt Bookstore is located at 57 Front Street, next to the Post Office.
We have BOOKS! And toys, cards, small gifts, stationery, wrapping paper and more!
Special orders placed over the weekend arrive Tuesday afternoon, in-print book orders usually take one or two days to arrive in the store.
