Used, Rare and Out-of-print Nautical and Maritime Books

Columbia Trading Company offers used, out-of-print, rare and selected new nautical and maritime books to readers and collectors
of ocean exploration and naval history, yachting and cruising, shipbuilding and design, ship modeling, navigation and seamanship, diving, ocean liners, warships, the merchant marine and nautical fiction.

Liquidation Sale

Sad to say, we are reluctantly withdrawing from the business of selling nautical books and artifacts.  While the sale of Columbia Trading Co. as an entity would be more to our liking – and we are still open to offers for this modest but viable enterprise – we will be selling off our entire inventory gradually over the rest of the year.

All items have been reduced by about one-third -- and then by an additional 20% on this secure website  and in our shop, thus 50% off on direct sales

Please feel free to give us a call about specific items desired, or type in the relevant words (title, author, subject matter, publisher, etc.) under “storewide search” on thiswebsite.  Should you find yourself visiting our shop on Cape Cod this summer or fall, you will encounter hundreds of additional maritime books priced $1 to $3 – and some quirky stuff besides.

Our West Barnstable shop (Exit 5 from Cape Cod's Mid-Cape Highway - Route 6) also displays the full spectrum of ship models, artwork, artifacts and distinctive gifts listed here -- and more besides.
