Providing delight to adventurous browsers, discerning readers, and collectors of fine books.

Welcome to Tryon Fine Books, an independent bookstore in western North Carolina specializing in scarce and fine books. We have over 10,000 volumes, most in the first edition and in exceptional condition, including substantial collections of both antiquarian and modern first editions, and many signed and inscribed books.

Our equestrian collection (American, British and many Derrydales) is the largest in the area, and we maintain extensive selections in the areas of: fine leather binding; history; travel adventure & discovery; fiction & literature; war between the States; biography; mystery and suspense; collectible children’s books; nature & wildlife; photography; architecture, art & design; literary criticism; botanical & gardening and much more.

We have assembled, bought, sold and evaluated some very large collections over the past ten years, and provide repair and restoration services through highly-experienced binders.

Our hours are limited, but we will always respond to your request for an appointment. There aren’t many book shops like ours left and we know you’ll find a visit memorable…come see us!

Warmest regards,

Harry Goodheart, Owner
