Lighthouse Books ABAA

The place to find antique prints, books and maps. 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.

We welcome you to visit our shop in St. Petersburg. Spend the afternoon browsing our shelves! We'll look forward to seeing you.

To learn more, follow us on Lighthouse Books, ABAA, the blog, and LIKE us on Facebook. Both our Facebook page and the blog are updated frequently, and we'll keep you informed of new arrivals, events we're attending, and anecdotal histories of some of our favorite authors. In addition, we offer special savings on Facebook Places/Deals or on Foursquare, available when you check in on either service.
