The Archives Book Shop is an oasis in time, with material from the 18th Century to the 21st Century, located a few blocks from picturesque Michigan State University with a coffee shop (and waterfall) connecting. We specialize in both modern and old-and-rare items for the collector and pleasure reader, as well as the scholar, with over 25,000 volumes and 40,000 vintage postcards: leather bindings, hardcovers and paperbacks, books that have been read, loved and make the heart sing; wonderful-to-hold-in-your-hand volumes. On any day, you may find signed documents, a letter from W. H. Auden, a leatherbound first edition of Johnson's Tour, a Faulkner paperback, vintage catalogs and automotive ephemera, etchings, atlases, bookends, original bookcover paintings, or real-photo postcards and photographs. We will send email JPG file color images of any item upon request.
Our store is quiet and unique, and an easy walk to downtown East Lansing, hotels, and Michigan State University. M.S.U is the original land-grant college and is known for its beautiful horticulture gardens and spacious river-centered campus.
We offer free parking in our large, private lot and are 1 mile east of US-127 freeway, 1 mile from the Amtrak-bus station, 5 blocks from downtown East Lansing, and 15 minutes from the Capital City Airport in Lansing.
There is a semi-annual bookfair in Lansing, the Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show; we have booths at each show and can provide information about the bookfair, dates, hotels, football games, and maps upon request. We are open 7 days a week, except for major holidays, and welcome all visitors.
