The Dusty Bookshelf

We specialize in scholarly and rare books. We also have a large selection of foreign language, Kansas regional and signed titles.

As a used bookstore with two storefronts in the culturally rich towns of Lawrence and Manhattan, Kansas, we are constantly getting new treasures. We see ourselves as a simple holding shelf for a book before someone finds it and allows another chapter of its life to be written.
