Blue Jacket Books offers a carefully selected inventory of used, rare and out-of-print books in many fields, including the arts and sciences, social sciences and humanities, local history and military history. We carry rare, antiquarian, and collectible items, as well as books for pleasure reading and research, including genealogy, Civil War, fine arts, U.S. History, Midwest Americana, and Medieval and Renaissance Studies.  Most of our inventory is used, and we have about 50,000 books on the shelves now, but we have a selection of new titles of local and special interest. We regularly purchase libraries, estates, and personal book collections, as well as individual books of value.

We are located in what was for a long time the Xenia Daily Gazette building in historic downtown Xenia, Ohio, about 20 minutes east of Dayton; prior to that, it was, for many decades, the S.S. Kresge department store. There are about 50,000 books on the store shelves, and new arrivals come in every day. The vast majority of our inventory is not listed on-line, including most of our inexpensive paperbacks, so if you can't find what you're looking for on the website, we invite you to contact us directly.

We offer free standard shipping within the United States on direct orders of $25.00 or more.
