Princeton Antiques and Book Service in Atlantic City, New Jersey has been collecting rare books for over 5 decades
Located along Atlantic Avenue is the Princeton Antiques Bookstore.
“Collecting, buying and selling books has always been a passion,” said owner Robert Ruffolo.
Ruffolo says the bookstore has been in his family for 56 years and is home to tons of rare and antique books, including a first edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen from 1894 and books by Amelia Earhart and Albert Einstein.
“The books contain the word printed. They will always be there. Have a book in hand that is truly remarkable in its content with not only the words on the page, but the quality of the way the book itself is put together.” , did he declare. .
The storefront is also a sight to see. Ruffolo says it’s one of the only outdoor showcases in the area, which was done out of necessity.
He says he has around 100,000 books in his store, all of which are for sale. The store also has a large collection of historic photos of the Atlantic City area that date back to the 1800s.
