About Us

Bygone Books

Bygone Books has been a bookshop in Burlington,Vermont since 1978. Originally started by five women (Priscilla Welsh, Sallie Soule, Barbara Wadhams, Betty Van Buren, and Jane Tormey), the shop was purchased in 1997 by Deborah Barnum. The bricks & mortar shop was closed in 2003 and has continued as a closed shop of fine used and collectible books with specialties in Women’s Literature / Women’s Studies; Domestic Arts (Cookery, Gardening, etc.); Decorative Arts; Great Britain; Books about Books; Children’s Literature; and Vermontiana.

If you are looking for a specific title, please call, as we offer search services and maintain want-lists. We also actively buy in our specialty areas, either single books or larger collections, so please call to make an appointment.
