About Us

The Bookseller, Inc. is an online business of used and rare books.  We feature books in all disciplines.  We have strong holdings in Akron and Summit County history as well as new and old books relating to Northeast Ohio and the rubber industry.

During its 70 years of operation, the management at The Bookseller, Inc. has been passed on from generation to generation.  Clarence Klein began operating the shop in 1948 in a basement in Cuyahoga Falls. Frank Klein took over the shop in 1970, and built it into a beloved part of Akron's retail scene. The online shop is now operated by Frank's daughter, Andrea.

We are members of the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society (NOBS).
