Lighthouse Books, ABAA is a family-owned and operated antiquarian book store located near Tropicana Field in downtown Saint Petersburg, Florida. We have been in business more than 35 years.
We're a general used book shop, with many volumes in a wide variety of subjects; we specialize, however, in books of a scholarly nature. Our emphases include Floridiana (Florida history, Florida authors, Florida related ephemera), American History, Literature of the South, Military History (including Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Korean War), Caribbean History, Gardening, Children’s Literature, and Antique Maps.
Please take time to browse our listings on this Web site. If you do not find what you are looking for, please let us know. Only about twenty per cent of our inventory is online. We also welcome you to visit our shop in St. Petersburg -- spend the afternoon browsing our shelves! We'll look forward to seeing you.
