Booksellers’ Gulch

…is (or was) that part of the upper Connecticut River valley bordering Vermont and New Hampshire, where there were booksellers in or near every town or village of any size. For readers, collectors, and members of the trade, this compact area was northern New England’s version of Manhattan’s Book Row and a bibliophile’s paradise. Nowadays “Booksellers Gulch” is a metaphor for where the books are. We hope the rumors of the imminent demise of bookshops have been greatly exaggerated and that bookhunters on the road or simply exploring areas near where they live, will find this guide helpful. This feature of Book Source Magazine has been neglected in recent years but will be expanded greatly in the months to come.

As this feature grows and as time goes on, it will be difficult for us to ensure that the information remains up to date - bookshops move or owners retire. This is where you all come in. If anyone is aware of any change that affects the accuracy of a bookshop’s listing, please get in touch with us and let us know. This will help everyone. Booksellers who want to apply for a free listing should call (315) 655-9654 or e-mail for particulars.
