Commonwealth Books

We offer 40,000+ select titles, from medieval manuscript leaves to recent mysteries. We have extensive holdings in art monographs, decorative arts, poetry, history, and literature, among others. Our antiquarian selection is quite strong. We also offer bins of old prints and engravings spanning from the 1600’s to 1940’s.

The "State Street T stop" (orange line and blue line) is approximately 90 feet from our front door (at top of stairs, go right, and look to the right and you will see our door or sign depending upon which exit you use. The Green line "Gov. Center T stop" is a few minutes walk away). Both the Spring Lane store and the Old South store are on the Freedom Trail and intersect Washington Street.

Browsers are always welcome!

We close but two days a year (Thanksgiving and Christmas day) so we will likely be open anytime you are in the area. Both locations are open 7 days a week.
