Avenue Victor Hugo Books specialize in first editions of the best in fiction, history, biography, poetry, drama, and essay. Our catalogue features careful, considered assessments of all of our stock. We are not flippers selling books by the pound. Instead, we try to limit our stock to books in a condition we'd be proud to place on our personal bookshelves.

For nearly 30 years, Avenue Victor Hugo Books was a fixture of Newbury Street in Boston's Back Bay, at one time holding over a quarter-million magazines and 150,000 used books. Awarded "Best Used Bookstore" multiple times by Boston Magazine, the store was a favorite of Boston-area authors and college students alike.

Since relocating to New Hampshire our shop has been featured on WBGH Boston News, WVCB's "Boston Chronicle," NHPR, and WMUR's "New Hampshire Chronicle." Avenue Victor Hugo has also recently been featured in "New Hampshire magazine," "The Boston Globe," UNH's "The New Hampshire," "The New Hampshire Union Leader," and "Foster's Daily Democrat."

Our store is open Fridays & Saturdays from 10am to 6pm in Lee, New Hampshire, less than 10 minutes from the University of New Hampshire.
