Andover Bookstore Main Floor

Title:

Description:
  • Originally located on campus next to Newman House, the Andover Bookstore has been around for over 200 hundred years. It was originally owned by Mark Newman, the third principal of the academy. Besides a bookstore there was a print shop which became the first in this country to own a set of Hebrew type. The original building is no more, but the bookstore is in a new building in town at 89R Main Street, but it made short stops in the Brick House on campus and 37 Main Street in town before its current home. The main floor bookshelves were evenly spaced and packed tight. This view shows that size was a main consideration for which shelf a book might appear.
