About Us



We're a general antiquarian bookshop in downtown Portland, Oregon, welcoming visitors by appointment only. We specialize in 20th Century literature and signed books.

Burnside Rare Books is run by Rachel Phillips and Roger Hucek. We've been selling books together since 2006. Before selling books, Rachel worked at several libraries and earned a bachelor of arts in Set Design from Emerson College in Boston. Roger received a BA in Creative Writing from Oberlin College, and an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. Not long after that he started in the trade at the now-defunct Wordsworth Books in Harvard Square.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please email us at info@burnsiderarebooks.com. We are located in the Bullier Building above Kelly's Olympian at:
