Sadly, I have been asked to take down the site. If you want to check out Macleods’ books, you’ll just have to do so in person:
455 Pender St W (at Richards), Vancouver, BC
Mon - Sat 10-6, Sun 11-6, Holidays 12-5
Thanks for everything,
One of the best used bookstores anywhere. I’m sad to see this tumblr go, but not at all surprised, since I once asked about it when I was there and was greeted with terrified looks from the younger staff that made it clear the owner is HIGHLY internet-phobic. Maybe I’ll go in and take some sneaky pictures to post for myself some day.
So long and thanks for all the
fish books, anonymous Macleod’s Books blogger!
Stolen iPhone means my vintage book porn doesn’t seem nearly as impressive, but it sure does feel good to have the band back together.
FYI: The red ones on the right are a lovely set of collected works by various authors from Black’s Reader Service, dated 1950, the navy & gold ones to their left are beautiful editions of comedies, biographies and histories issued by the Book League of America, dated 1942, and at the far left are selected volumes of Britannica’s Great Books of The Western World series, dated 1952.
Next step: we make it pretty.

A book you didn’t know you needed until now, AMIRITE?
These people are getting life SO right. (Some decent literature in there!) #latergram #books #cuteness #libraries
I didn’t buy it, but this would have filled a lore hole I didn’t even know I had.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Looks like this might be a First, if there are any collectors out there.
Click through, but be prepared to disappear for a while…
