Kingston, the first capital of New York State, is a small city on the banks of the Hudson River that is rich with American history. As such, it makes the perfect setting for an antiquarian bookseller such as Pages Past. We always have a fine collection of old, used, and rare books in many categories.

Vintage hardcovers
Vintage ephemera

Antique maps
Classic novels

Sports memorabilia
Vintage magazines

Antique manuscripts
Vintage pulp fiction

While we pride ourselves on a diverse collection of printed materials, we do specialize in certain categories in which we have particular expertise:

Vintage and collectible sports books
Vintage Children's books
Vintage Americana
Regional books and magazines from New York, the Hudson Valley, and the Catskill Mountains

Pages Past has been selling books and ephemera since 1991 with an emphasis on mail order and internet sales. We do maintain an open shop with hours by chance or appointment.

Sales are domestic and international to individual collectors, dealers, libraries, and universities. We strive to provide the best combination of condition and price. We are happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases and all sales are returnable if not completely satisfied.

Our expert services include appraisals for insurance, tax, estate and valuation purposes.

You can browse our huge inventory and make purchases online. Please call or email Tom if you have any questions, or are interested in something you don't presently see in our inventory. Thanks for visiting!
