About Us

 The Captain's Bookshelf was established in 1976 by Chandler and Miegan Gordon. We are located on the Northwestern edge of Downtown Asheville at 31 Page Avenue. We buy and sell books with an eye for quality--whether it's a five dollar paperback or a five figure manuscript. Our inventory consists of "good books in good condition" in literature, poetry, art, gardening, regional history, philosophy, religion, classical studies, children's books and more.
