Art, architecture, Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic history, DelMarVa, New York and New Jersey, Pennsylvania German folklife and culture, regional Americana, cook books, exploration and travel.

The Saucony Book Shop, located at the epicenter of Pennsylvania German folk culture (our shop specialty), offers a full range of gently used, rare, and antiquarian books, with many volumes of scholarly merit and an unabashed emphasis on the quaint, the curious, and the utterly obscure. We make no attempt to be a general-service book shop. Our inventory is highly selective, individually chosen with discerning readers and collectors in mind. Our browsing inventory of more than 15,000 volumes is housed in a cozy ca. 1890 barn and lean-to adjacent to an historic creamery in rural Maxatawny Twp., Berks Co. Our shop is available for browsing by appointment; please call or email ahead if planning a visit.
