About Us



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

Burnside Rare Books is owned by Rachel Phillips and Roger Hucek. They have 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 degrees in Creative Writing from Oberlin and Emerson Colleges. Not long after that he inadvertently started in the trade at the now-defunct Wordsworth Books in Harvard Square. Head cataloguer Liz Hopkins joined the company in 2023.
