BOOKPLATE is a traditional general stock used bookstore offering a wide range of books in a
broad array of categories. We emphasize the local history of the Chesapeake Bay region with a
strong focus of books relating to the history and literature of Maryland's Eastern Shore as well
as its colonial and revolutionary heritage.
Located in historic Chestertown and situated along the banks of the Chester River with the
Chesapeake Bay a few miles away, Bookplate has an expanded section on maritime history,
exploration, sailing, navigation, nautical fiction and tales of the sea. We also carry books for
the maritime trade. World history, politics, and war and diplomacy are well represented with
an emphasis on the Middle East, Southeast Asia and China. The fields of art, architecture,
design and the decorative arts are well stocked with a large selection of books, monographs
and exhibition catalogues on the textiles of Central Asia.
Bookplate hosts the annual Kent County Poetry Festival, a hugely successful event
co-sponsored with Washington College and the Kent County Arts Council, and maintains an
extensive poetry section, anthology collections, as well as books on literary criticism.
Bookplate also features a large books on books section. We are constantly adding inventory to
our popular sections of cooking and gardening. We have shipped books to customers in more
than 30 countries and will be pleased to ship a book to you, no matter where you call home.
Bookplate is also proud to carry the complete collection of "Idiots'Books" books, prints and
posters. Bookplate has partnered with the creative duo of Robbi Behr and Matthew Swanson
since they unveiled their highly creative style of writing and painting collaborations. More of
their work can be seen at their website www.idiotsbooks.com.
