Hiding Place Books

Hiding Place Books is located in South Philadelphia. We occupy a cozy spot -room #306- on the third floor of the Bok Building. Our stock of antiquarian, collectible and out-of-print books is accessible online, as well as by appointment. And some of it is for sale on this very website!


What We Sell

Hiding Place sells a wide variety of antiquarian, collectible and out-of-print books, as well as paper ephemera and records. We have special concentrations in poetry, literature, and scholarly material in all fields.

What We Buy

We are always buying libraries and collections of interesting books and records! No quantity is too large. We are especially keen on purchasing scholarly libraries. We make house calls, and are happy to travel for sizable collections. Please call or email if you have books or records to sell.

What Else Do We Do?

We host poetry readings! Nine years ago we held our first reading, at our old location just north of Chinatown. Forty-nine readings later, we’re still going strong. Please sign up to be notified of upcoming readings; or, you can like us on Facebook.
