Melanie Nelson Books

518-537-5027

Our books are mostly art, history, biography, military--because we started in 1982 using our own books--and when we started selling online in May 1995 we began with that original stock but have branched out over the years. The other half of the business these days is a roadside bookshop The Little Red Book Shack - open April-Oct selling books that are NOT listed online.
