About UsWe are an independently owned and operated book publishing and book-selling firm that specializes in titles related to the mountains of New Hampshire and northern New England. The publishing arm of Bondcliff Books, which was founded in 1997 by White Mountain hiking enthusiast Mike Dickerman, typically introduces two or three new titles each year. These include hiking guides to the Whites, books on local history (especially logging railroads), and New Hampshire fishing guides.
Over the years Bondcliff Books has also evolved into one of the region’s largest distributors of New Hampshire-related titles. Besides selling books produced in-house, we also distribute books and maps published by other New England entities such as University Press of New England (Lebanon, N.H.), Globe Pequot Press (Guilford, Conn.), Branch Line Press (Pepperell, Mass.) , Tilbury House Publishers (Gardiner, Maine), Hobblebush Books (Brookline, N.H.), Durand Press (Etna, N.H.), Plaidswede Publishing (Concord, N.H.), Map Adventures (Portland, Maine) and Huntington Graphics (Burlington, Vt.). Bondcliff Books also offers distribution services to select self-published authors–primarily authors who have written books about New Hampshire and the White Mountains region.
From our small retail shop on Littleton, New Hampshire’s thriving Main Street, we sell everything we publish and distribute, plus many other books, both new, used, and rare. Our small shop (3500 titles) is stocked with a little bit of everything, but our specialty areas include new and used New Hampshire and New England books, hiking and climbing guides, and books on natural history, mountaineering, and baseball. Our inventory also includes an ever-changing selection of choice remaindered or bargain books--usually priced 50 to 75 percent below the original cover price–plus a growing number of sale-priced DVDs.
We are a member in good standing of New Hampshire Made, Inc. and the New Hampshire Antiquarian Booksellers Association. Bondcliff Books’ founder is also a longtime supporter and member of the Mount Washington Observatory, Randolph Mountain Club, Appalachian Mountain Club, Weeks State Park Association, Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and numerous local historical societies. ATTENTION: Please note that we remain open for business, but our shop in Littleton is not presently open to the public. We are processing internet and mail orders on a daily basis and will continue to do so during this unprecedented COVID-19 era. Be safe and keep reading!
